A classic French tale of morality and the ménage à trois
Set in Parisian society after the First World War, this is the study of a three-sided relationship between Count Anne d'Orgel, his wife Mahaut and a young man they befriend, Francois de Seryeuse. The couple then find that their marriage is qualified and confirmed by the feelings thus released.
