Synopsis / Plot
Paris, 1920, period of the silent cinema. Emile, a film maker, takes under his wing Jacques and schools him in the art of seduction whilst counselling him never to fall in love. This, of course, sets the scene for Emile to do just that when the daughter of a friend turns to him for help. Emile finds Madeleine irresistible despite her being young enough to be his daughter and though she stops short of loving him in return she does develop a deep affection for him and would be quite happy to marry him until, of course, she meets Jacques...
