Pierre Lachenay (Jean Desailly) is a well-known publisher and lecturer, married to Franca (Nelly Benedetti) and the father of 10-year old Sabine (Sabine Haudepin). He meets stewardess Nicole (Françoise Dorléac) and they start a hidden affair, but Pierre cannot stand staying away from her.

Glenn Heath Jr. called the film "a mesmerizing morality play detailing the machinations of adultery and their deadly consequences." That sums it up. But indeed, the French have become synonymous with love and romance (though it is not clear why, since they are also seen as smelly and hairy). Here we have a story that shows the difficult part of love: aging.

Although not appreciated in its time, the film looks beautiful and is easily on par with "Jules and Jim".
