Nouchka van Brakel - Een Vrouw als Eva AKA A Woman Like Eve (1979)

An off-beat twist for its time on the classic story of a custody battle, Een Vrouw Als Eva stars Monique van de Ven as a housewife who jumps ship on her husband and children to pair up with Liliane (Maria Schneider). Eve meets Liliane while on vacation in the south of France and at first, she is simply entertained and attracted by Liliane's free-wheeling, back-to-nature existence but soon discovers that there is a sexual component to her attraction. Once the decision is made to divorce her husband, Eve spends some time with Liliane before going back home to fight over custody of her two children. From that moment on, the drama evolves around the complex emotions that plague two basically decent people as they argue over the children they both love. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, All Movie Guide
