Based on a novel by noted French author Gustave Flaubert, this routine love story centers on the romantic "education" of young student Frederic (Jean-Claude Brialy), who works for an important businessman and also lives in the servants' quarters in his boss's house. Frederic develops a passion for the wife of one of his boss's employees but is not successful in seducing her into any sort of a relationship. Without missing a beat, he ends up with the employee's mistress instead -- but not for long. By now Frederic has devised a way to get through to the wife he still desires though exactly how successful he will be this time around is questionable.
