Simple Passion

Filmmaker Danielle Arbig (Parisienne) proves that passion is typically anything but simple. In a seductive drama adapted from Annie Ernaux’s novel, single mother Hélène (Laetitia Dosch) loses herself in her infatuation with married Russian diplomat, Aleksandr (bad boy ballet star Sergei Polunin), before their increasingly dangerous affair unpredictably shifts from dreamy to devastating. A compelling explicit study of erotic obsession, SIMPLE PASSION is an intense and intriguing French erotic drama part of the official selection at the Cannes Film Festival.
