Synopsis

The last in Eric Rohmer's six-piece 'Moral Tales' sequence, this subtle study of love and monogamy stars Bernard Verley as Frederic, a bourgeois businessman living in the suburbs of Paris with his wife Helene (Françoise Verley), a teacher who is expecting their second child. Their marriage is happy and loving, but Frederic can't stop fantasising about other women. When Chloe (Zouzou), his beautiful ex-girlfriend, returns to Paris after working in America as a model, she starts seeing Frederic again, and they begin to meet in the afternoons on a platonic basis to talk about their lives. Eventually Chloe, who is trapped in a relationship with a man she no longer loves, tries to seduce Frederic, and he is faced with a decision that is both complex and achingly simple.
