Summary:
One of the earliest and best-loved films of this period in his career, which balances a realistic depiction of tormented romance with staging that remains true to the director's roots in experimental theater. This unforgettable, unforgiving dissection of the imbalanced relationship between a haughty fashion designer and a beautiful but icy ingenue, based, in a sly gender reversal, on the writer-director's own desperate obsession with a young actor.
General Note:
Originally produced as a motion picture in 1972.
