Certain men—gays and hairstylists among them—have a particularly astute handle on what women want. Richard Temtchine, who is decidedly not the former but who was, for 22 years, the latter, is one of these men—and he's translated this insight into his new film, How To Seduce Difficult Women, opening in New York City on Friday. The Paris-born Temtchine wrote, directed and produced the film, which follows Philippe, a married Frenchman living in New York, as he instructs hapless American men in the art of seduction, while sustaining ample practice himself with various mistresses. Temtchine came up with the idea after running into an acquaintance who struck him as a particularly difficult woman, and realizing he had the tools to make her soften, if not melt.
