Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
This routine drama about a thespian couple, Marion (Nicole Garcia) and Gabriel (Jean-Pierre Marielle) takes place during the second half of their hit comedy, as the two try to work out their differences. Marion plays one of the leads in the comedy, opposite an actor of lesser abilities who also happens to be the author of the play. Gabriel, on the other hand, has come down from his apex as an applauded tragedian to play only a small part in this piece -- and passes the time with a bottle in his dressing room, vainly attempting to drown his sorrows. As the couple's relationship comes under scrutiny, it is eventually revealed that there is more to their problems than first meets the eye.
