Storyline

Cette comédie acerbe et surréaliste sur le mariage et la vie de couple s'avère aujourd'hui l'une des fictions les mieux réussies sur le sujet. Elle est pourtant très mal reçue, autant par la critique que par le public. À présent, la dimension ironique et l'audace de la structure narrative (un couple, une journée, une vie, une époque) ressortent davantage.
