A recently divorced actor and a no less lonely woman meet by chance in a New York diner. The city – its bars, its cheap motels and its rented rooms – becomes the cinematic setting of the couple’s escalating and mysterious relationship. A move against desperation and drift, their affair nevertheless glows with an urgent and compulsive romance. ‘Three Bedrooms in Manhattan’ – closely based on the story of his own meeting with his second wife – is Simenon’s most passionate and revealing work.
