Storyline

Can one ensure immortal love? Hippolyte, an eccentric notary, sees his marriage to Camille as his one great success. He also believes that love doesn't last, and this flummoxes him as they approach their 15th anniversary. To test her love for him, he promotes her seduction by an anonymous stranger, behaves badly to guests, makes love clumsily, sleeps in the guest room. All this breaks her spirit, and she asks him to move. It's devastating to Hippolyte, Camille, and their two sweet children, but he persists; he can't seem to shake this humour. Then, they reconcile and depart on a second honeymoon. Is this a renewal of domestic bliss or a an interlude in Hippolyte's mad design? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Tremendously effective
6 November 1998 | by (North Bay, Ontario) – See all my reviews

An outstanding film that gracefully makes the transition from wacky comedy to drama in the final minutes. Simply put, this film has it all, especially a large number of zany moments that should have you laughing out loud, but it's the sweet ending that you'll remember best once the film is over.
