César (Yves Motand) is in love with Rosalie (Romy Schneider). But she isn’t making it easy, especially when her old flame enters the picture.

Critics reviews

The set-up may recall Ernst Lubitsch, but Sautet complicates it in several unexpected ways. For one thing, Cesar’s jealous rages become scarier as the movie goes on, culminating with a violent scene around the halfway mark that threatens to turn the movie into Bergmanesque psychodrama.
