French filmmaker Nadine Trintignant writes and directs the 1971 drama Ça N'Arrive Qu'Aux Autres (It Only Happens to Others), based on her real-life experiences with actor husband Jean-Louis Trintignant. Catherine (Catherine Deneuve) and Marcello (Marcello Mastroianni) lose their baby daughter Camille to a deadly illness. In order to mourn their loss, they shut themselves off from the world by hiding in their apartment. After weeks of seclusion, Marcello decides to break their isolation.
