This French film is the first feature directed by longtime Godard actress Anna Karina. The stodgy life that schoolteacher Alain (Michel Lancelot) led before he met Julie (Anna Karina) was all that kept him together. When they become lovers, she induces him to loosen up and introduces him to her drug-taking, hippie friends. At first he cannot get along with them, but eventually he loses his job and gives himself over to drugs and drink. She tries increasingly frantically to keep him with her, but he finally walks out on her. By that time, they have had a baby.
