THE DIARY OF LADY M.
THE DIARY OF LADY M.


SYNOPSIS
Lady M. sings in some of the less well-known Paris clubs. Awaiting her backstage one evening is a Spanish painter who soon returns to Spain. Something about the man has moved Lady M to passion: she flies to meet him in Barcelona. This time their relationship is as much about passionate lovemaking as it is about compatibility. She discovers that the painter has a negro wife and child. She invites his whole family to join her in Paris. Surprisingly, they do, and the number of people sharing their love and sexual appetites changes from two to three. This story is allegedly based on the personal diaries of Myriam Mezieres, who narrates.
