Directed by
Patrice Chéreau

Mark Rylance is a barman in a nightclub, separated from his wife and family, who enters into a solely sexual relationship with Kerry Fox. But one day, after their weekly erotic encounter, he follows her and discovers she's married to cabbie Timothy Spall. Befriending him, Rylance tells him of his affair with a married woman without mentioning her name but Fox, already tiring of the affair, finds out and her anger knows no bounds. Patrice Cherau's first English language film examines the lives of two people bound together by extreme emotional ties and the damage they cause to each other and those around them.
