Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
Consumed by sexual passion, David Jernberg pursues his relationship with Eva despite the fact that this marginally attractive woman is having a destructive effect on his life and everything he values. David, a scientist with a wife and a middle-class life, is a mature man who is just beginning to face the issues of aging. Eva is hostile to everything he represents, except when she is in the middle of the act of love: there, her abandonment in the moment is capable of exerting a hypnotic effect on him.
