Synopsis: Realising a dishonest deal has been found out, a diamond merchant commits suicide, leaving the gems in question for his wife. Knowing the business from a time before drink largely took over her life, Marianne decides to sober up and sell them herself. Though they attract much interest, the lure of the stones means that she may have to confront her past as well.
Catherine Deneuve plays a fascinating, flawed central character in this suspenseful story of redemption.
“This complex, sophisticated and increasingly suspenseful tale of love and betrayal, intrigue and redemption, is as elegant as its star and its settings.” ~ Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times.
