Synopsis

A talented but callow novelist enjoys the acclaim afforded his just-published novel, while his marriage to a well-to-do Milanese woman deteriorates. As she grieves for a dying friend she once loved, he is both bemused by and attracted to the advances of other women, particularly the ravishing daughter of a potential new benefactor. An empty evening of visiting decrepit neighborhoods, exotic nightclubs, and a swanky villa party leads to a final confrontation, which reveals the somber truth that love does not always conquer all.
