Adapted from Colette's controversial 1920s novels 'Cheri' and 'The Last of Cheri', which centres on a six-year love affair between a young man (Friend) and an aging courtesan (Pfeiffer) and its aftermath, Stephen Frears' film is a complex and visually exquisite meditation on ageing and loss; themes that are effected on both a narrative and formal level.
This film is not currently showing in cinemas.
