French New Wave film-maker Agnès Varda directs this drama exploring the complex and devastating effects of an extra-marital affair.
François (Jean-Claude Drouot), a happily-married carpenter with a young family, finds himself falling in love with telephone operator Emilie (Marie-France Boyer).
As he basks in the joy and passion of his new relationship, he finds that far from feeling alienated from his family, his feelings for them are actually enhanced and intensified.
But when he tries to share his joyful discovery with his wife, her reaction is far from the delight that François hoped for.
