Synopsis by Dan Pavlides
Carl (Matthieu Carriere) is the young scholar who comes to live with French geologist Julian (Maurice Garrel) and his wife Isaballe (Marie Dubois) and two children. Carl is eager to study with the famous geologist, but soon he is involved in a love affair with his mentor's wife. A jealous laborer tells the husband of the tryst and Isaballa confesses to her husband. He has tempered his once callous exterior and gruff demeanor in the wake of his wife's infidelity in this plodding romantic drama.
