Synopsis by Dan Pavlides
Martin (Jean Rochefort) is a coward who is swept up in the revolt by French students in May, 1968 in this Gallic comedy of errors. He helps the rioters destroy his own auto as his wife and children watch the proceedings in disbelief. Martin wakes up in a student commune and sees the beautiful Eva Catherine Deneuve, and the smitten coward follows her to Amsterdam where she secures a job as a cabaret singer. When her jealous boyfriend comes calling, Martin runs back to Paris. He pretends to have amnesia to get out of trouble at home, but he finds she has taken another lover in his absence. Martin races back to Amsterdam and brings Eva back to Paris in hopes of marriage after her boyfriend dies. After the ceremony, Eva reveals she is married to the American businessman Charlie (Robert Webber). Martin accepts a position as a chauffeur, content to be Eva's lover during Charlie's frequent business trips.
