Contents/Summary

Summary
A disgruntled and cynical picture of early 1990s Romanian realities. Marion (Charlotte Rampling), a sly and sophisticated French madame, convinces a beautiful bevy of Romanian women to board a bus and travel to Paris, where they believe lucrative careers as exotic dancers await them. Among them is ballet dancer Dora. Her husband Andrei tries to save her from prostitution. To get his wife back, Andrei must convince Marion to give him one night to make an appeal to Dora. Marion guesses correctly that Andrei's sincerity is no match for her worldly wiles. In the end his efforts are repaid, but the result is surprising.
