Description A beautiful, if ambitious and amoral, youth is tapped to become the lover of a powerful senator. The young man quickly realizes that he can hold this place, with all its perks, only as long as he is young. He has no other function than being young. With the help of an aged judge, the young man, referred to only as The Lover, contrives a plan to make a change in the way of the world, a plan that will take him years to realize. To succeed, he must manipulate, in subtle and not-so-subtle ways, the senator, his wife, the family chauffeur (who was, when young, a lover), and, by implication, the entire well-planned and controlling everlasting secret family.

    At the end of the film, the protagonist takes pleasure in the belief that he has transcended whatever role he was given to play (remember how they're all assigned some sort of role at the "confirmation" ceremony). Maybe the very illusion that he's carved out his own path is the pre-destined role for him, though. Maybe he only thinks he's outwitted the system, when in fact the system has made him what he is after all. It's a twisted version of the Zoroastrian ideal of the saved saviour-the deceived deceiver.
