    Christian is in his early thirties and his solitary life is wrapped up in his mother, who is lying in a coma in a Montreal hospital. It's more an act of despair than selfishness that propels him one day to turn off her life-support machine, allowing him to try cautiously to begin a new existence in the far north of Canada.

    Romy Schneider appears in the role of the beautiful Nadine, torn between her love for two men, a part which brought her a César for Best Actress.

Andrzej Żuławski came out with an expressive melodrama filled with passion, tears, all manner of violence, and lightning twists.
