With a graceful round of self-deceptions and mistaken identities, exquisite rationalizations and fortuitous accidents, Rohmer pierces the glossy veneer of the social scene and the dignified realm of art to reveal the sexual fury that they embody.
There's irony but no cruelty here; Rohmer is not making Louise the butt of the joke or saying "serve her right." It's simply in the nature of stories illustrating a proverb that someone is bound to suffer from the principle at stake.
Rohmer's wordplay is scalpel-precise, but the movement of his characters, the blocking of figures in dances of desire, figurative and literal, is also supremely graceful even as relationships explode with casual centripetal force.
