“Playing with Fire is the aesthetic culmination of Robbe-Grillet’s cinematic ritual of seduction.” – Marcus Stiglegger
Grossly affluent banker Georges de Saxe (Philippe Noiret) keeps his daughter, Carolina (Anicée Alvina), hidden in a mysterious house of perversion after a kidnapping attempt snags a young woman who resembles her. Carolina soon finds herself trapped in a deliberately confused existence in the house of sexual exploitation and imprisonment. At the heart of it all seems to be an enigmatic man named Franz (Jean-Louis Trintignant), who will either be Carolina’s killer or savior.
Alain Robbe-Grillet’s surreal, absurdist sado-masochistic drama Playing with Fire (Le jeu ave le feu) was a commercial success due to to the appearance of Emmanuelle star Sylvia Kristel – in one of her most challenging roles.
