The Soft Skin, DVD



French New Wave auteur Francois Truffaut directs this study of a Parisian affair.

Jean Desailly stars as Pierre Lachenay, a successful middle-aged novelist and broadcaster who begins an affair with Nicole (Francoise Dorleac), a pretty young air hostess he meets on a flight to Lisbon while en route to deliver a lecture.

Despite having little in common with Nicole, Pierre is enraptured and continues the affair on his return to France.

But when his wife Franca (Nelly Benedetti) discovers his infidelity, she becomes consumed with a desire for revenge, and a tragic denouement unfolds.
