Antoine, a socialist minister in France, is a rising star in the political spheres of his country. He has been making legislation to make schools better. He has also entered in a dangerous affair with a powerful woman, Florence, who happens to be married, even is there is nothing between her and her husband Jean-Marc. The lovers must hide in order to see each other at moments both are able to steal from their complicated lives.
As the story begins, we see Antoine and Florence having a passionate time in bed. The apartment she uses for the trysts is convenient for their affair, but she wants more. She suggests they spend three days together, something that proves too hard because both are so prominent in their fields that it is not easy to get away when they want. Later, Florence gets into hot water when one of the factories she wants to remodel goes on strike and she is kept hostage until the issue is solved.
This French comedy, shown recently on a French cable channel, was directed by Jacques Rouffio, who also co-wrote the script with Jacques Kirsner. The allure for watching the film was the strong cast that was assembled. We have always liked Nicole Garcia, a multi-talented lady of the French Cinema. She was dressed for this occasion by famous designer Sonia Rykiel whose creations enhanced Ms. Garcia. Sami Frey plays Antoine with his usual intensity. Pierre Arditi has nothing to do as Jean-Marc
