This little movie owes a lot to its

main stars ,Marina Vlady and Frederic de Pasquale.This is the simple story of a laborer working overtime to give his wife a comfortable life,but who does not understand she's frustrated.While snatches of turmoil are heard on the radio,their couple runs into difficulties when she falls in love with a teacher.He epitomizes culture,a world she hardly knew(there is a very odd scene,at the beginning,showing the eleven-year old son and his mother,watching some kind of opera "the Persians";another unusual scene : on the building site,the laborers discover some kind of Venus de Milo and some of them act with it as if it were a woman in the flesh) Simone Signoret's daughter Catherine Allégret plays the occasional prostitute who appears briefly at the end .A very nice score by Georges Moustaki.
