A drunken self-destructive woman called Betty (Marie Trintignant) wanders through bars and meets a man that drives her to a restaurant outside Paris called Le Trou (The Hole). She meets the middle-aged alcoholic Laure (Stéphane Audran) from Lyon, who is the lover of the Le Trou´s owner Mario (Jean-François Garreaud). Laure decides to take care of Betty and brings her to the room next-door in her hotel. Along the days, Betty tells the story of her bourgeois life and her unhappy marriage to Laure and also recalls moments of her promiscuous life.

"Betty" is a depressing and dark film by Claude Chabrol with the non-linear and fragmented story of a promiscuous and self-destructive woman called Betty. Her non-likable character is never attractive to the viewer that does not care to what happens or has happened to her. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Betty - Uma Mulher sem Passado" ("Betty - A Woman Without Past")
