In a subway, Hugo (Mathieu Carrière) catches a glimpse of Myriam (Marina Pierro) & decides to seize the opportunity & pick her up - at first not realizing that she's a prostitute on the pull. At first though they are seperated by subway tracks & have their first conversation trying to shout over the subway noises, but soon they get within arm's reach & do some cuddling first in a quiet corner of the station, then in a church.

When Myriam tells him she's a prostitute though, Hugo seems either to not believe her or not care one bit, & he lets her take him to Sara Sand's boudoir (though it's not certain there even is a Sara Sand or if it's just another side of Myriam's personality), where she - claiming it's a rule of the house - totally submits herself to him.

After he had his way though, Myriam turns the tables on Hugo, telling him the whole affair has been secretly filmed & now he has to submit to her will, lest he wants to evoke the anger of Sara Sand & her brutal Cambodian henchman Ping (who might be a figment of Myriam's imagination as well).

After a round of brutal sx during which Myriam has scratched open most of Hugo's body, seh lets him go, but keeps his expenxive wristwatch, his papers & his shoes.

As he is leaving, Myriam tells him to go to the Seine to wash the filth of himself ... which he does.

down at the Seine, Hugo meets another prostitute, Josy Bernard, who tells him, looking for advice, to say yes to everything - an advice he intends to heed. Then the prostitute stabs herself & dies right in front of him. When the police arrive & ask him if he killed her ... he says "yes" ...


Admittedly this movie is rather poor on story, it is however told in a fascinating way, with artsy but poignant dialogues, imaginative scenes (especially the conversation over the subway tracks), interesting camera set-ups (often reminding of hiddden cameras), a very poetic treatment of the plot & of course a fair share of eroticism (despite remarkably little nudity).
