Married early thirty-somethings Joanna and Mark Wallace are making the three day drive from their home in London to St. Tropez for the unveiling of the lavish house Mark, a successful architect, designed for his wealthy clients, Maurice and Francoise Dalbret. Joanna and Mark are at a rough stage of their relationship, much of their conversation along the way centered on the possibility of divorce to end the farce they now consider their marriage.

In 1967, Audrey Hepburn had gotten into the "swing" of things by being with Peter O'Toole in "How to steal a million" and did not want to go back to being in flops like "paris when it sizzles" or wearing the same old Givenchy clothes. In this film you see a change in her, a new haircut, clothes from the grooviest designers of Mod London and elsewhere like Mary Quant and Paco Rabanne, you see her eat! eating casually bread, grapes;making funny noises,etc. you actually see her having fun in this picture.She plays Joanna Wallace who with her husband played beautifully by Albert Finney reflect on the good times and the bad times of their twelve-year marriage.This film is must see because it goes beyond the happy ending and into actually imitating life where marriage is not always perfect. where marriage has fights and arguments and sometimes infidelity and hurt but love usually conquers all.must see.
