The title of this Gallic "filmed essay" translates to Men Think Only of That. What plot there is concerns "timid soul" Jean Bellanger, who loves salesgirl Catherine Erard from afar but hasn't the nerve to tell her. Bellanger is visited by the ghost of Don Juan (Jean-Marie Amato), who demonstrates a variety of courtship and seduction techniques for our hero's edification. Structurally, the films resembles such later "how to" comedies as Bedazzled and Guide for the Married Man. Because of its episodic structure, Les Hommes ne Pensent Qu'a Ca was deemed a likely candidate for early television release by contemporary critics.
