Director Jean Eustache has included two identical stories told in contrasting ways in this very short festival feature. In the story, a young man who has heard that a hole in the men's room wall will allow him to see into the women's bathroom finds the tale very exciting. Even the fact that he has to lie face down on the men's room floor to see into the ladies' side does nothing to deter him. The first version is as told by an actor to a film director and his friends, and it initiates a philosophical discussion on the meaning of sexual excitement (and related issues). The tale is then acted out by Jean Noel Picq.
