Director Pierre Kast is known for his cinematic portrayals of personal relationships, and this low-on-budget, high-on-talk drama focuses only on that theme. Episodes vary, as a small group of men tell their version of a romance and then the distaff side relives the same experiences from their point of view. The realities of insecurity and love lost, show up in most instances. Some men in a bookstore lose out when a new and good-looking bookkeeper is hired whom the women cannot resist. A poet just seems to suffer through his unfortunate relationships, and a quartet of women discover they cannot shuffle around four different men between them with impunity. Not many win out in these sketches of personal relationships.
