Neither of them knows about the other's involvement at all, though much of the drama comes more from Paul's (and to an extent Jeanne's) emotional issues.

When released, the film's groundbreaking subject matter caused a media frenzy and [[MoralGuardians Moral Guardian]] outrage; despite some glowing critical reception and Academy Award nominations for Brando and Bertolucci. It is regarded nowadays as one of the best European films and best arthouse films ever made. It could be considered the [[TropeMaker progenitor]] of the {{Euroshlock}} genre. It is an obvious influence on the films of Creator/CatherineBreillat (who herself has a small appearance in the film), specifically ''[[Film/{{Romance}} Romance]]'' and ''[[AnatomyOfHell Anatomy of Hell]]'', both of which would help to revive the Euroshlock genre in the 2000s.

Paul (Brando), a 45-year old American who lives and owns a hotel abroad in Paris, is mourning the suicide of his wife when he meets Parisan woman Jeanne (Schneider) whilst apartment hunting. Jeanne herself is engaged to a film director, though Paul does not know this initially. The two feel lonely and marginalized, so they begin a torrid affair, of which the rules, as set by Paul, are that they do not tell each other any personal details about themselves; not even their names. As time goes by, Paul becomes possessive and starts to act abusively towards Jeanne; in one infamous scene he anally rapes her [[{{Squick}} using butter as lubricant]]. He has fallen in love with her, and wants her for himself. He tries to pressure her into leaving her fiancee and telling him her name, and eventually she is left with no choice but to kill him by gunshot, thus ending the film.

* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: Invoked and deconstructed -- Paul starts out as borderline TroubledButCute, but gets increasingly nasty and abusive towards Jeanne, both physically and verbally... yet even after some of his nastier moments she confesses to have fallen in love with him. Jeanne is, however, portrayed as rather messed up, and it gets increasingly obvious just how toxic their relationship is.
