Synopsis by Dan Pavlides
This uneven film has Colin (Jacques Perrin) marrying a delicate young girl who soon dies after their wedding. His friend Partre (Sami Frey) is an avid collector of objects belonging to his favorite author, often spending his remaining money on the souvenirs. After Colin's wife dies, he steals her body and disappears, and the banker's daughter kills Parte's favorite author. There are hints of social satire and symbolism in this story taken from the book by Boris Vian.
