Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
In this rather sordid French drama, an unhappy couple go on vacation to an isolated resort owned by a different couple. The proprietor's husband has been sick for a long time and she ends up falling in love with the visiting husband. When her long-suffering husband finally dies, the other man begins trying to blackmail her by threatening to inform the police that the woman helped her husband die. In exchange for his silence, the man demands that he and his wife be allowed to stay at the hotel's expense. Eventually the blackmailer's wife gets bored with the slow-paced life and ends up doing a coochy dance for the bartender. The hotel owner learns of this, and to make the extortionist jealous, entices his wife into a lesbian affair. Unfortunately, the ploy fails and the married couple ends up reconciling briefly. They then fight, causing the husband to make love to the proprietor on the beach. The wife comes back and threatens to blackmail them both. In the end, the proprietor admits that she really did kill her husband.
