Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
In this imaginary tale set in 18th-century Europe, Cazotte (Jean-Pierre Cassel), a regaled court painter and womanizer is out to seduce the indomitable Ehrengard (Audrey Matson) -- not an easy task, as he is about to find out. Ehrengard has been sent to be a companion and lady-in-waiting to the young Princess, exiled for the time being to a distant country estate so her out-of-wedlock pregnancy will not become public knowledge. Ehrengard may be schooled in all the amenities, but she rides and thinks like a veritable Amazon and no matter what Cazotte does to capture her fancy, she is far from smitten. After the Princess gives birth, the baby is kidnapped and Ehrengard, completely undaunted by the task ahead of her, sets out for the kidnapper's lair, fully confident that the ruse she has planned will be more than enough to save the day and to get back at Cazotte for his unrelenting sexual overtures.
