C. Thomas Howell,
In Amsterdam, the violinist Emilia is married with Charles and they have a little daughter, Anna. Emilia is trying to sell the house that belonged to her deceased mother. One day, she is alone in the house changing clothes and out of the blue the client Leon (Huub Stapel) comes into the room using the key provided by the real estate agent. Leon starts a seducing game with Emilia and they have a kinky love affair, affecting her relationship with Charles and Anna. Written by

_The Indecent Woman_ draws out several themes, among them the tension between the desire to loosen restraints and the fear of losing control. Emilia, the central character, muses at one point that "fantasies are so contradictory", which captures the mood of the film perfectly. The potential for an individual to lose him or herself in desire is a key issue as the story unwinds.
There are several much more explicit scenes, but keep an eye out for the "shadow foreplay" sequence, which is perhaps the most tense and erotic sequence in the film. Later, the shadows resurface, this time as a threat, mirroring the progressive change in the relationship between Emilia and Leon.
