For intellectuals only.

Well once again the nouvelle vague in all its splendor:not a story,but a chronicle of rich bourgeois ' holiday in a desirable mansion in Portugal.They are twelve and all of them are not really happy.One woman (Genevieve:Michele Girardon) keeps on asking her lover :" do you love me?do you still love me?Why do you need the others if you love me?Does it mean that you do not love me anymore?;another (Michel:Michel Auclair) was once an idealist ,and now he's working on special photographs for a special magazine.After a poker game,a woman leaves a man (Jean-Marc:Jean-Marc Bory) for another one (Pierre Vaneck).Daniel(Daniel Gelin) feels that he is 42 and getting' old.Jean-Pierre (Jean-Pierre Aumont) and his wife are the hosts and they seem to have problems too but after all,c'est la vie...And there's more,cause they are twelve..

....it's also the nouvelle vague in all its horror.Those people who spend their time contemplating their navel,for they do not have any other problems -that is to say making ends meet for instance-do you really care for them?If you do,well,more power to you.If it makes you yawn your head off,well ,we agree.
