The original idea of the movie is to insert well known tunes of french popular songs in the middle of the dialog and the action.

Camille falls in love with the real estate agent Lambert Wilson and Wilson's employee Simon falls in love with Camille. Soon Camille suffers from a nervous breakdown which will bring her closer to Simon. Several little plots involving Odile, Camille's sister, who buys an apartment from Wilson and Nicolas, the hypochondriac ex-boy friend of Odile, complete this Resnais masterpiece.
