A highly erotic, gothic mystery, in the style of Hitcock's Vertigo,
from Alain Robbe-Grillet, writer of the Oscar nominated Last Year in
Marienbad and director of the notorious Trans Europe Express.
An English historian travels to Morocco to work on a study of the painter Delacroix. He hears of a rare series of engravings and embarks on a search for them that takes him through the mysterious streets of the ancient medina. He becomes obsessed with the figure of a beautiful blond woman dressed in white that he sees there. But it appears that she may have died years before.
The historian's young lover, Belkis, tries to warn him away from his obsessive search. But, it's too late... he is already entangled in a complex labyrinth of desire.
