Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
Planning on a long stay, Toussaint and his wife Madeleine (Philippe Noiret and Monique Chaumette) leave their Paris home for a house in the Corsican resort village they grew up in. He has just retired from his lifetime job with the Paris Metro. They hope, by moving back to the countryside, to catch up on old projects, relive the memories of their youth, and grow vegetables. One man's elegiac nostalgia is simply a boring film for others, and critical response to this slow-paced and somewhat downbeat star vehicle was mixed.
