The issue of a marriage dying of sexual boredom is raised in this routine drama, one of the earlier films by Polish-French director Jean-Pierre Mocky. Pierre (Jean Kosta) has perhaps been married too long. He has lost interest in the intimate, personal side of his relationship with his wife yet he wants to follow the dictates of socially acceptable behavior. The result is that he stays married and faithful. In the meantime, his wife Annette (Juliette Meyniel) tries to reawaken the flames of romantic love but the fire fizzles because all ardor seems definitively dead. Ironically, it is Annette in the end, who solves the problem.
