Decent performances by Francois Perier and Annie Girardot cannot save this slight, routine drama by director Jean-Charles Dudrumet. The story concerns a wife (Girardot) who is having an affair behind her husband's back. She and his brother plot to kill the husband and then things go tragically wrong. Instead of one dead husband, the brother is killed by mistake. Meanwhile, the real truth about the woman's lover and her relationship to her husband take a few turns before the end credits roll.
