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
21:48, 32:02, 39:45 - Solange's bed scenes with Stephane. She's naked but they are usually just talking in these scenes either before or after sex.
1:08:08 - Solange lets Christian sleep by her side because he is being bullied by his peers in the kids' quarters at the summer camp. When she falls asleep, he peeks at her boobs and vagina by lifting up her nightgown. She wakes up and gets mad. But the kid's a smooth talker, and she ends up taking her nightgown off and having implied sex with him.
1:24:52, 1:31:53 - Solange and Christian kiss, with the latter done at the kids' quarters, in front of Christian's peers, certifying his tale to them that he bedded her.
Solange gets impregnated in the end too, but her husband and her lover don't know who could be the father. It could be either of them or the kid.
