Influential, masterful, beautiful. Really good art creates a world of fantasy which is so far above the daily life in France that almost everyone plots an escape. Adequate becomes inadequate. Middle-aged men trade (or will stop at nothing for the chance of trading) their middle-aged wives for models just out of puberty. The divorce rate seems a decent 40%, but in circles I know, it is closer to 90%. You meet many men who are at their fifth wife. It's much difficult for the women, although they too fling themselves at younger men or very often other women.
