Julie (Jessica Forde) and her childhood sweetheart Jean (Jean-Claude Adelin) are separated in this uneven but prize-winning romantic drama. When Jean is shipped off to live with his aristocratic father, Julie later becomes engaged to Henri (Simon de la Brosse), a young man from her own social standing. When Jean returns, Henri is driven to fits of jealous rage, and Julie follows the uninterested Jean back to Paris in an attempt to win his love again. This feature won the Jean Vigo Prize in 1987.
