Set in the stunning surrounds of 1960s Italy, EVA stars a smouldering Jeanne Moreau (JULES ET JIM, DIARY OF A CHAMBERMAID) in the title role. When an author, Tyvian, meets the sultry, cigarette-smoking man-eater Eva
, he falls for her - hard. In spite of the love of his fresh-faced young fiancée, Tyvian desperately seeks the attentions of the destructive Eva
. But as he sinks into obsession, the world around him crumbles.
