A woman attempts suicide in a gay bar; a man saves her at the last moment. When he asks her why she tried to commit suicide she says: “Because I am a woman.” An agreement with the man for “watching and recounting her” in exchange for money and four nights spent in a house built just beside a steep cliff… Anatomy of Hell, where Breillat focuses on a woman’s desires with her sharp and genuine point of view, takes start.
