Solange is depressed: she's stopped smiling, she eats little, she says less. She has fainting fits. Her husband Raoul seeks to save her by enlisting Stephane, a stranger, to be her lover. Although he listens to Mozart and has every Pocket Book arranged in alphabetical order, Stephane fails to cheer Solange. She knits. She does housework. Everyone, including their neighbor a vegetable vendor, agrees that she needs a child, yet she fails to get pregnant by either lover. The three take a job running a kids' summer camp where they meet Christian, the precocious 13-year-old son of the local factory manager. It is Christian who restores Solange to laughter.
17 December 1978 (USA)

Due to possible problems with the Child Protection Act UK cinema and video versions were cut by 5 secs to edit a scene where Christian looks at Solange's naked body as she lays in bed. The cuts were later waived for the 15-rated 2007 DVD. See more
