Writer Henri Laborit presents three stories that illustrate the complexities of human behavior. René is a man from farming roots who becomes manager at a textile factory. Meanwhile Janine, an actress turned stylist, is involved in an affair with Jean, a politician who faces difficulties at home.
One of Alain Resnais’ most surprising and successful films (winning six Césars awards!) is a playful critique on modern society starring Gérard Depardieu. Basing itself on behavioral psychology, this is both an absorbing and outlandish endeavour, revolving around a bristling trio of characters.
