Claude Magnier translated his stage play into this routine film which given its source, runs to words over action and visual nuances. The premise provides enough fodder to keep conversation going for some time, however. A man is driving in the countryside when he has car trouble and is forced to find help at the nearest house. No one seems to be around, so he goes in, drinks some water (that has a barbiturate dissolved in it), and then promptly falls asleep next to the lady of the house -- already sound asleep herself. When her husband comes home and discovers the two of them together, some explanations are forthcoming -- and a surprise ending as well.
