Antoine is an accountant, uptight and withdrawn, married to Edith, who picks out his clothes and shoes. He's assigned to a fitness gymnasium for a month to straighten out their books. The owner, M. Roland, encourages Antoine to use the facilities, including the massages, so Antoine goes to Dominique, a muscular African. In these sessions, Antoine discovers that the pain is comforting, and Dominique finds the accountant ideal for his own sadism. When Dominique breaks Antoine's arm and then goes to the hospital to take Antoine away, Antoine confesses his fascination with and fear of death. With Dominique's help, the accountant breaks all earthly ties to confront his fear.Written by
Antoine is a quiet accountant who starts temporary work at a health club. While there he meets Dominique, a black masseur, and begins having sessions of massage by him. Gradually, the massages become more painful and arduous, but Antoine likes it more and more this way. The film focuses more on the emotional desire, rather than showing the pain inflicted. Mind games are played in the office where Antoine works, with other staff. It ultimately spins out of control into tragedy, and the ending is tortuous.
