Splendid and disenchanted, one of the most beautiful films by François Truffaut
Pierre Lachenay, aged about forty, is married. He lives in the 16th arrondissement of Paris with his wife Franca and their granddaughter Sabine. During a trip to Lisbon where he is giving a lecture on Balzac, Pierre meets Nicole, a young air hostess. He sees her again in Paris and becomes her lover...
After the love triangle of Jules and Jim , François Truffaut continues his exploration of the couple by tackling the theme of adultery. Combining both news items and autobiographical elements, La Peau douce is a marital drama conceived as a thriller. By opting for an openly Hitchcockian staging, François Truffaut films love as the greatest suspense.
