A dramatisation in two parts of the life of the French writer, Colette, whose own story was every bit as scandalous as the risque novels that so pleasantly shocked French society at the turn of the century.

But her unscrupulous husband, Willy, was a connoisseur both of literary salons and of the low life.
Director Gerard Poitou-Weber (In French with English subtitles. Part 2 next Friday.)
