Plot Summary
In this adaptation of Henry Miller's controversial 1934 novel, the film's backdrop is 1960s Paris. Expatriate American novelist Henry Miller (Rip Torn) spends his life womanizing and cavorting aimlessly around the city, while his forbearing wife, Mona (Ellen Burstyn), poses no deterrent to his hedonistic lifestyle. Miller and his friends romp through the streets searching for pleasure, one conquest after another, without regard for the consequences.
