Zorg's life as a handyman repairing bungalows on the French Riviera is pleasant and relaxed until gorgeous, wild, and unpredictable Betty steps into his life. Suddenly he has passion and fabulous sex. When he loses his job they move and she gets work as a waitress. She discovers he has been working on a book and persuades him to submit it for publication, but each time it is rejected she flies into a thunderous rage. Over time, we witness the inability of Zorg's love and devotion to save Betty as she descends into total mental collapse. This 1986 Jean-Jacques Beineix film, based on Philippe Djian's reportedly autobiographical novel (the French title is "37.2 Degrees in the Morning"), is beautiful, stylish, erotic, and ultimately an emotional stunner. In her film debut at age 21, delectable Beatrice Dalle is a force of nature.
