Synopsis

Roberto is a dandy!An unmoved, inscrutable and thus enigmatic man. He enjoys the aristocratic amusement of astonishment.Women, whom he knows full well in all sorts of styles and races, can no longer surprise him.The truth is that Roberto feels the intimate tedium of those who have exhausted all the delights and pleasures of this life.Yet... One evening,he is intrigued by a woman who reminds him of someone.That night, of descent into heaven and rising to hell, this woman discloses the peculiarity of the life that has become hers.And amidst the terrible overwhelming, Roberto witnesses the sublime horror into which that woman has dropped.He leaves closed within himself,unsettled by the glimpse of a certain love that,after all,he never has lived.
