Alle Filme von Jecques Demy sind bezaubernde und grausame Märchen, aber ESELSHAUT noch mehr als die anderen, da dieses Werk auf einem Märchen von Charles Perrault beruht. Nach dem Tod der Königin kommt der König in einer unglückseligen Stunde auf den Gedanken, seine eigene Tochter, die Prinzessin, zu heiraten. Diese jedoch hört auf die Worte ihrer Patin, der Fliederfee: " Es wäre eine große Fehler, seinen Vater zu heiraten!", verkleidet sich und ergreift die Flucht vor den inzestuösen Absichten des Vaters. ESELSHAUT ist eine Entdeckung für das deutsche Publikum. Die Prinzessin trägt die reizenden Züge von Catherine Deneuves, und in einer weiteren Hauptrolle erscheint die bezaubernde Delphine Seyring. Sie schwebt durch die Decke in die Säle, reist per Hubschrauber und bringt den König aus Liebe auf den rechten Weg zurück

X attempts to convince A that they met last year in this same hotel (or maybe it was in a different one). They loved each other, emotionally and physically. She agrees to elope with him and get away from M, her husband (or lover). At the last moment, she refuses (for whatever reason) and asked for a one year postponement. Now, the year has passed and X has come to their agreed rendezvous to take her away. A claims she does not recognize X and does not remember any agreement between them. At first, X is surprised, and he recounts conversations the two of them had, supporting details, relating scenes convincingly. A persists in not remembering, even though X produces a photograph of her as a proof of his claim
