Billy is a bricklayer in a small town from Provence .He has always seemed to have a job finding someone to settle down with.He eventually marries Nina ,even though he does not love her passionately;just after the wedding party ,he meets Viviane ,whose husband walked down on her ,leaving her with a child .It's love at first sight ......

It's a harmless little comedy : a blue collar in love with a bourgeois woman ;but the main interest is the beginning: the necessity for a man (essentially from the working class ) to get married :under pressure(concerned about what other people think) he takes the first to come ,and both are miserable .

These problems are only skimmed over in the movie ;but the ending is partly a false happy end.The movie is saved by first-class actors such as Brigitte Fossey and Richard Berry.Bernard Stora's follow-up , "Vent De Panique "is more successful .
