Phillipe and Esther live an apparently idyllic life with their daughter, Elise. In an attempt to preserve this bliss, Phillipe decides that he and Esther should each have affairs, being sure to tell each other openly about them. The plan backfires with tragic results as Phillipe becomes engulfed in jealously.

Pleasure Party is yet another offering from the great Claude Chabrol that puts it’s central focus on the director’s all time favourite subject; that being infidelity. The director has explored this topic previously in films such as The Unfaithful Wife and Wedding in Blood (among others), but Pleasure Party stands out because it’s an overall much darker tale than what went before, and may well be a contender for Chabrol’s all time darkest film.
