Unemployed after being dismissed from the play that he was rehearsing in Paris and on cold terms with his partner Françoise, Christian takes refuge in the Corbières hills with his friend Nathalie. She has fallen in love with Hippolyte, who joins them between two business trips. His arrival causes tension and so Christian moves to Campagne de Cicéron, a property owned by his friend Hermance. When he arrives, he finds that Françoise has been invited too.

Jacques Davila

Born in 1941 in Oran (Algeria), Jacques Davila started in cinema via television. For three years, from 1969 to 1972, he was assistant to Janine Bazin and André S. Labarthe in programmes such as Cinéastes de notre temps and Les Archives du XXe siècle. He then made two short films on two painters-Bonnard and Ingres-before working on certain sequences of Dim Dam Dom. His first work as a director was in the theatre in the mid-1970s. In 1976, he made Certaines nouvelles, for financial reasons not shown until 1979 and for which he won the Jean-Vigo Prize. With a special position in the 'bande à Vecchiali', Jacques Davila participated in the collective adventure of the Archipel des amours and was joint screenwriter of Gérard Frot-Coutaz' films Beau temps mais orageux en fin de journée and Après après-demain. Two more films-Qui trop embrasse (1986) and La Campagne de Cicéron (1989)-followed before his early death on 14 October 1991.
