The heroine is very interesting and reminiscent of some of the women in Colette's short stories. She is in essence a fraud. This is revealed in an early scene of undressing before collapsing in bed in exhaustion. She is a great manipulator of people's responses to her, knowing precisely what technique to employ to elicit the response she desires.
