Though happily married to his adoring wife HÃ©lÃ¨ne, with whom he is expecting a second child, the thoroughly bourgeois business executive FrÃ©dÃ©ric cannot banish from his mind the multitude of attractive Parisian women who pass him by every day. His flirtations and fantasies remain harmless until Chloe (played by the mesmerizing Zouzou), an audacious, unencumbered old flame, shows up at his office, embodying the first genuine threat to FrÃ©dÃ©ric's marriage. The luminous final chapter to Rohmer's Moral Tales is a tender, sobering, and wholly adult affair that leads to perhaps the most overwhelmingly emotional moment in the entire series.
