Sigh........I need help. A couple years ago, maybe 3 or 4 there was a film that was broadcast on either Cinemax or Showtime and it was about a French prostitute who takes mercy on a beggar sleeping underneath her apartment. She had black short hair, very skinny and he was with a full beard and rather, well, looked like a beggar. So she feeds him and gives him wine and for some reason she allows him to be her lover and he in return cleans up, shaves, and starts taking her money and buying nice clothes. He then begins to become a ladies' man and starts making money by having sex with them. Somewhere along the way he meets a blond woman and, I forget what happens afterwards, but eventually the prostitute is forced to return to her old ways and the guy somehow gets arrested by the police. Somehow the blonde woman and the prostitute meet, and I believe the blond was pregnant when she had helped the prostitute out a street argument. They became friends and I think they knew the guy but he had disappeared. Over the years the prostitute becomes married and has children and she and the blonde continue a friendly relationship. Then, they both find out the guy had gotten arrested and they tried to explain to the police what had happened (not sure why they had to tell their story) but in the end, they both are admitting that even though he had taken their money, left them, they still love him and want him out of jail.
End of story. If you can tell me the name of the film, God I'll be grateful.
