Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
Auguste (Georges Wod) goes to a remote Swiss village for a meeting in the course of doing some research. Instead of meeting his informant there, he comes across a girl who has been thrown out of the house by her writer boyfriend; she is too distracting and he can't work with her around. Ferdinand takes her back to stay with him and his wife. While she is around, he cannot work. His wife has a brief affair with a middle-aged hippie (Jean-Louis Trintignant) while he carries on just as briefly with the girl. All's well that ends well in this Swiss romantic comedy, when the girl goes back to her writing boyfriend.
