What goes through a man's head when he is in bed with his much younger wife, Carla, and hears her say in her dream a name other than his own? Well, if you are Paul, a Parisian analyst, you try to decipher what was on her mind and what appears to be a sexual fantasy about another man. To make matters worse, Paul begins to treat Raphael, the man his wife seems to like.
The problem facing Paul is that his professional integrity is put in jeopardy when he realizes the effect Raphael, a young cook, has upon Carla. To make matters worse, Paul suddenly sees how the attraction is real. He must act to bring his wife's infatuation to an end. How he goes about it is another story.
That is basically the plot of this romantic comedy directed and created by Bernard Jeanjean. The film is helped by the three stars: Richard Berry, Judith Godreche and Julien Boisselier. This is an enjoyable movie because of the pacing Mr. Jeanjean has injected in the film. Mr. Berry does his best to give life to Paul. The beautiful Judith Godreche is an asset, and the same can be said about Mr. Boisselier. The result is a fun movie to watch because it has a right touch.
