A man is put in a cell in which there is a monolith surmounted by a red button. The prisoner looks at it continuously. What is the use of this button? Is it dangerous to push it? Or, on the contrary, is it the way to freedom?
Likeable low-key comedy, with a nice line in understated dry humor. The film is composed of seven short stories each illustrating one of the 'sins' of the title, the sins in this case being such things as 'tenderness'. Robert Mitchum is excellent in a relatively small part as a very American God (God smokes big cigars and speaks English; the rest of the dialogue is in French).
Quirky and enjoyable in an understated way.
