Magali is a widowed wine grower whose best friend, Isabelle, is concerned that she is lonely now that her daughter has grown up. Isabelle secretly decides that she must find her a new husband, and puts an advert in a lonely hearts column. When she looks for a suitable candidate, she finds Gerald.
Rohmer’s last comedy of manners in his “Tales of Four Seasons” cycle was a big commercial success and won the Best Screenplay award in Venice. In the bucolic vineyards of Southern France, the search for love of Magali, played by Marie Rivière, gives way to a multitude of romantic entanglements.
