In 1964 Paris, Madeleine works as a shoe salesgirl and a part-time prostitute. She falls in love with Jaromil, a Czech doctor she picks up, and the two continue to see each other for years despite Madeleine's marriage to another man. Meanwhile, Madeleine's daughter Vera has romantic trouble of her own: she is torn between her longtime boyfriend and an unobtainable American musician.

Awful. Boring, insipid, overlong, and as tasteless as flat soda. Even worse than Honore's previous films. The Alex Beaupain "songs" with their unmelodic melodies and absurd lyrics out of a rhyming dictionary are disgraceful. Paul Schneider tries, yet the script defeats him. Deneuve looks fat; Chiara M, an interesting actress when plump & brunette, makes one incredibly dull anorexic blonde. Honore's worldview consists of loathsome cheap ironies and a perverse sentimentalization of sexual abuse. STAY AWAY FROM THIS CRAP!!!!
