Michèle shares her life with Paul, her husband and work colleague. She has a lover, Thomas, a musician with whom she has been having a passionate affair for some time. Attracted by Thomass non-conformity and lust for life, Michèle abandons her husband, her son and her profession to live this frenzy through to its conclusion.

A woman leaves her husband and young son for another man
A juvenile film about superficial angst. The main character, a self-absorbed woman, takes up with a lover and leaves her husband, which gets her all knotted up, drunk and abusive. We are expected to suffer with her for more than an hour. Merci non, madame.
Many of us have been through marriage breakup. We did not get drunk, have promiscuous sex, slash our wrists or abuse our children in the process.
The subtle process of couples drifting apart has been done infinitely better before -- check out Scenes from a Marriage by Bergman, an adult.
The cinematography was competent.
