A French lieutenant makes a bet that he can seduce any woman in town in the two weeks before his regiment leaves for maneuvers, but his chosen target (a Parisian divorcée) isn't like other girls he's known.
French censorship visa #16.679.
Le lieutenant Armand de la Verne:
I left in a fit of anger. That's very good. It impresses them. First be firm, then be kind. If kindness doesn't work, use the whip!
A darker alternate ending was shot and is included on the UK DVD: riding off to the manoeuvres, Armand sees Mdme Rivière's window is open and smiles, believing he is forgiven. The camera then cranes up to the window - where we see the maid discovering Madme Riviere's dead body in bed.
