Cuisine Chinoise (Chinese Cooking)

Synopsis

Patricia (Irène Jacob) is trapped in a relationship with an obsessive and dangerously irrisistible man, Pascal (Yvan le Bollac'h), whom she no longer loves but cannot leave. Too afraid to tell him it's over, she is desperate to find a way out of this stifling relationship.

One night, Patricia begins reading an ancient Chinese book on military strategy called The Art of War, by Sun Tzu. Although the book is very complicated, she realises that she can apply some of its military strategies to help her end her relationship with Pascal.
