0 Reviews
Cheap hotel rooms provide the mise-en-scene for this concupiscent literary and photographic fiction: a shabby backdrop for a series of erotically exciting adventures. The photographer is Bettina Rheims, famous for her detached yet highly daring portraits of women. The writer is Serge Bramly, known for his highly charged, fantastical novellas. Together they form a Monsieur X, a distant relative of Truffaut's "The Man Who Loved Women" and an amateur photographer filled with an insatiable curiosity concerning women's bodies.
