The first pictures show Jean-Marc (Jacques Charrier) getting out of the coach and walking across the country.The second part of "la Vie Conjugale" is treated as a flashback,which makes sense, since it begins after the separation.
The screenplay is roughly the same as "La Vie Conjugale:Françoise" but this time ,the lady does not come off best.If her husband used to leave her alone at home,it's because his work was a calling.Day and night ,you said it! he used to care for juvenile delinquents ,going as far as to take them home when the missus went to society parties.And when she took a job,she used to cheat on him with the first one to come.
In its spirit,the two-part movie was revolutionary.But the results do not really rise to the occasion.In "Citizen Kane" for instance,we had different pointS of view in ONE movie and we discovered that we actually did not know anything about the late hero at the end of Welles' masterpiece ."La Vie Conjugale" ,although interesting ,is pretty low-brow.
Here we're left with two broken hearts ,one of them with a girl who finds it hard not seeing her father anymore and another who comes back to his dear juvenile offenders.
