By Cecile depicts post-World warfare II France because it reels from battle and restoration. In Paris, an orphan lady, Cecile, reveals shelter with an older guy. He introduces her to nightclubs, intellectuals, artists (Jean Cocteau, Jean-Paul Sartre, and Eartha Kitt!), and non-monogamy. whilst she falls for his mistress, she starts off to stay a existence she deems beneficial of writing approximately . . . yet merely below the pseudonym of her husband.
