In a Versailles hotel suite, a young woman named Betty picks though an envelope of photos and retails her past life to an older woman, named Laure.Betty and Laure both seem to enjoy the stuff.Fully drunk, Betty was dressed in bourgeois attire, but disheveled as any loose woman who's down on her luck.With the help of her lover Mario, the owner of The Hole, Laure LeVaucher (Stephane Audran) had rescued Betty, taken her back to her hotel and lodged her in an adjoining room.Schwartz, who was fond of Freudian analysis, would tease Betty that Therese had been a formative influence on her character.It's difficult to place "Betty" within today's refined genre categories.Madame Etamble (Christiane Minazzoli), the family matriarch, insists that Betty go by "Elizabeth".The film returns to Schwartz's inquiries into Betty's relationship with Therese.
