Kaplan’s to date final film as director was scripted by her with Jean Chapot. Depressed man of letters Pierre Arditi (reunited with Kaplan after Pattes de Velours) lucks into a tutoring gig and is whisked away to a tropical colonial island; there the moves are put on him by Françoise Fabian (My Night at Maud’s), Dominique Blanc (Queen Margot), and (in her first movie) Cécile Sanz de Alba. The cinematography is by Jean-François Robin (Betty Blue).
