In one of Agnès Varda's more provocative films, she presents us with the dilemma faced by husband and father François who finds himself falling in love with an attractive postal worker. What follows is a detailed study of adult fidelity and happiness, which will ultimately end with major repercussions for all parties involved. Many of the feminist elements of the film would go on to reflect the social movements taking place in the late 1960's in France.
