The Soft Skin

Synopsis

A haunting score by Georges Delerue enhances the mood in Truffaut's dark and suspenseful follow-up to Jules and Jim. While on a business trip, married literary critic Pierre Lachenay (Jean Desailly) meets a beautiful airline hostess (Françoise Dorleac) and begins an affair. As Pierre's behavior becomes increasingly impulsive, his infidelity sparks a devastating act of jealousy and revenge. A mixture of Hitchcockian suspense motifs and acutely observed drama, The Soft Skin is one of Truffaut's most penetrating works.
