A highly erotic gothic mystery, in the style of Hitcock's Vertigo, from Alain Robbe-Grillet, writer of the Oscar nominated Last Year at Marienbad and director of the notorious Trans-Europ-Express.

An English historian comes to Morocco to work on a study of the painter Delacroix. He hears of a rare series of engravings and embarks on a search for them that takes him through the mysterious streets of the ancient medina. He becomes obsessed with the figure of a beautiful blonde woman dressed in white that he sees there. But it appears that she may have died years before.

His young lover, Belkis, tries to warn him off both obsessive search and his obsession with the mystery blonde. But it's too late. He is already entangled in a complex labyrinth of desire, from which death may well be the only escape.
