One of the earliest and best-loved films of this period in his career, which balances a realistic depiction of tormented romance with staging that remains true to the director's roots in experimental theater. This unforgettable, unforgiving dissection of the imbalanced relationship between a haughty fashion designer and a beautiful but icy ingenue, based, in a sly gender reversal, on the writer-director's own desperate obsession with a young actor.

On one level, it is an engrossing character study about changing power dynamics in relationships. On another, it's simply a marvel of fluid, focused filmmaking - where everything in the frame is loaded with meaning.

which is more compelling - to be the one who loves more or is loved more? in any case, it wasn't love, but obsession.
