Le Plaisir

A Feature film by Max Ophuls

Produced by Compagnie Commerciale Française Cinématographique (CCFC)

    Three stories about the pleasure. The first one is about a man hiding his age behind a mask to keep going to balls and fancying women - pleasure and youth. Then comes the long tale of Mme Tellier taking her girls (whores) to the country for attending her niece's communion - pleasure and purity. And lastly, Jean the painter falling in love with his model - pleasure and death.
