The Lover

She gave her innocence, her passion, her body. The one thing she couldn't give was her love.

The Lover (1992)


A poor French teenage girl engages in an illicit affair with a wealthy Chinese heir in 1920s Saigon. For the first time in her young life she has control, and she wields it deftly over her besotted lover throughout a series of clandestine meetings and torrid encounters.
