Françoise Dorléac, Jean Desailly

Pierre Lacheney (Desailly), a married, middle-aged editor and television lecturer, lives a dull, mechanized life until he meets an attractive airline stewardess on a flight to Lisbon and begins an affair. She is attracted to his celebrity but understands little of his work. Lacheney’s wife hears of the affair and trouble begins. “Desailly profoundly illumines an individual, a boy who plays the love game for fun and discovers too late that women play for keeps.” (Andrew Sarris)
