Uncompromising and shocking portrayal of the life of a French pimp and his wife exploited by him as a prostitute, who stay together in an almost post-apocalyptic post-industrial landscape. Shot on grungy Super-8.
The first hour focuses on the everyday activities of the man and woman. They consume cheap food, watch TV and nasty porno, they receive customers and combat each other with psychological power games.
Despite emotional numbness, the woman tries to escape. She makes friends with another woman, but then decides that returning to the man is the easiest option. The return of the other woman heralds the very shocking finale. Not for the squeamish.
