During a sea cruise Hugh Grant and Kristin Scott Thomas are drawn to alluring sexpot Emmanuelle Seigner and her sardonic paraplegic husband Peter Coyote, who recounts the story of their warped sadomasochistic relationship in Paris and orchestrates a highly-charged game of onboard sexual intrigue. Polanski is at his most playful and perverse in this artfully misleading erotic drama.
