Synopsis by Clarke Fountain

This French comedy journeys with Armand (Jean-Claude Brialy), a valet, as he tries to find an appropriate employer for his specialized skills. Alas, the rich are not what they used to be. His first employer's husband is jailed for embezzlement and she can no longer afford him; his second employer obsesses about her days as a leading opera star; his third is a nymphomaniac who is a little too interested in him; and the fourth is a government minister who works much too hard. Perhaps the renowned poet (Pierre Bertin), who wants to remain at home with his cats, will properly appreciate a good valet.
