Odile suspects her husband, Jean, is cheating. Thus she decides to give him a taste of his own medicine. Fate gets her in touch with an actor, Daniel, who she will use for her revenge.
The actor, living with a former serviceman, Albert, will make love with her. But there will be unexpected consequences: Odile and Daniel will be bound forever by an irrepressible love.
"This light, playful, but at the same time uncompromising film confronts and juxtaposes what seems irreconcilable: suffering with gaiety, the pathos of the first degree with facetious winks to the point of caustic comedy." (avoir-alire.com)
