The true arthouse shocker that was the catalyst for much pearl-clutching, censorship and polarizing reviews has lost none of its impact after forty six years. Fifteen years after the war a Jewish woman recognizes her nazi tormenter from the concentration camp, in a Paris hotel. She confronts him and sets out to relive the sadomasochistic relationship she had with him culminating in a devastating conclusion in search for the ever elusive catharsis from her wartime trauma.
