“Since last September, I’ve done nothing but wait for a man — to call me and come to my house.” Laetitia Dosch brings a depth and gravitas to Danielle Arbid’s sexually explicit, clinical analysis of the female gaze in this story of romantic and erotic obsession. Boldly adapted from Annie Ernaux’s Frank 1992 autobiographical novel, Simple Passion recounts the story of a French literature professor and divorced mother who is gradually, totally, consumed by her sensual and emotional desire for a mysterious Russian diplomat brought chillingly to life by Ukrainian ballet star Sergei Polunin.
