Paris, 1914. A well-known psychiatrist becomes more and more involved with his patient Marie, an illiterate but kinky seamstress. They both share a fetish for silk...a strong sexual one.
So far, not so strange for a French art film. But it gets more interesting as the psychiatrist develops a thesis - one about this fetish. This thesis and the real fetish both characters share blend into one weird love story indeed. Many have found the plot especially well written. It won the award for Best European First/ Debut Script at Angers in 1994.
