In this French film, a mime has ambitions of performing on a grander scale than he has usually been able to achieve. To fulfill his vision, he needs a grant from the Ministry of Culture. The bureaucrats in this film are shown in a grey-faced variation on the white-faced makeup of mimes. Just as he is about to go onstage for his big performance (complete with ballet dancers as back-ups) he receives word that his wife has been injured in a car accident. He finds out at the hospital that his wife has died, and he runs into the street in mime-face, and unwittingly gives the mime performance of his life, showing his grief. One highlight of this film is the insight it gives into the little-known world of mimes.
