    • Synopsis
    • Paris, early 1900's. Provoking a cataclysmic crisis in her conventional, bourgeois marriage, Mme Hervey (Isabelle Huppert) and her husband (Pascal Gréggory) each take on the supposed virtues of the opposite sex. Mr. Hervey loses everything in a fatal blow from the one place he would never have imagined: his wife, his wife who is no longer his wife. She, Gabrielle, emerges as untouched and intact as a block of granite. Stripped of his manhood, Mr. Hervey, now left with nothing, will fall apart and disappear.
