The story centers on a young gigolo, Bertrand Valade who steals the manuscript of a dying client. After a year, becomes a playwright and is now living in a decked-out Parisian apartment. The only problem is that his producer, Regis Grant has been waiting impatiently for a new play which the imposter Bertrand is somehow supposed to write. When Bertrand shows up for a rehearsal of his hit play, which is now touring the provinces, he crosses paths with a high-class call girl, Eva who quickly becomes an obsession that will ruin his life.
This movie ended right after its prologue. You are left wondering what was it? Isabelle Huppert, at 65, should stop playing a seductress if she remains fully clothed in all scenes. A body-double could also be used if her age is the problem. Visual effects keep her face ridiculously youthful and it is in contrast with the faces of male actors that show their real age.
Leading actors performances were good, and that is ALL I can say about this "movie".
