by Jean-Jaque Annaud

A 15-year-old girl of French origin, who is in Indochina with her family, falls in love with a wealthy and charming Chinese man twice her age. The two become lovers, but while he seems to have sincere feelings, she seems to be exclusively attracted to the sexual sphere of their relationship. The situation is reversed when the man is forced by his family to marry another woman and the girl discovers what it means to suffer for love.
