A woman (gorgeous ex-model Amira Cesar) stands in a gay bar, observing the men and their shared desire, with their requisite need for nothing else. She retires to the ladies room where she slices her wrists. When asked why by one of the clubs protagonists (internationally known porn star Rocco Siffredi), she replies ‘because I am a woman’. This is how they meet. The Girl proposes that she pay him to watch her in ways ‘that are unwatchable’ and so begins four nights of confrontation, her against him. Four nights to confront the unspeakable, to explore what can’t be shown: that which is secret.Adapting her own, poetic-polemic novel for the screen, Catherine Breillat takes her trademark exploration of gender-politics and sexual mores to a shocking conclusion.

This film is well named as I felt i had been shown the door to Hell while watching it.It is a promotion of female self-loathing that doesn't shy away from repetitive ,revolting scenes which are hung with existentialist maxims and pseudo-psychological diagnoses.
