Solange is depressed: she''s stopped smiling, she eats little, she says less. She has fainting fits. Her husband Raoul seeks to save her by enlisting Stephane, a stranger, to be her lover. Although he listens to Mozart and has every Pocket Book arranged in alphabetical order, Stephane fails to cheer Solange. She knits. She does housework. Everyone, including their neighbor a vegetable vendor, agrees that she needs a child, yet she fails to get pregnant by either lover. The three take a job running a kids'' summer camp where they meet Christian, the precocious 13-year-old son of the local factory manager. It is Christian who restores Solange to laughter.

Raoul (Gérard Depardieu) is so determined to help his wife Solange (Carole Laure) out of her depression that he asks a stranger, Stephane (Patrick Dewaere), to be her lover. When Stephane''s efforts as a lover fail to improve Solange''s mood, he stays with the couple, joining Raoul in his efforts to help her. Solange''s apparent inability to have children may have something to do with her depression, so they take positions where she can spend time with children -- a summer retreat for boys. One of the boys, 13-year-old Christian (Riton Liebman), is being persecuted by the other boys. When Solange brings Christian to her bed to protect him from the other boys, they become lovers. In Christian, Solange has found someone she can talk to, who loves her and brings out her maternal feelings. The problem then becomes, for Raoul and Stephane, is how to keep the lovers together. This absurd French romantic comedy won an Academy Award for Best Foreign Film in 1979.
