Janus Films | Release Date: October 19, 2012
Summary: The subjective/ subjunctive constantly becomes concrete for businessman Pierre Etaix: at his wedding to Annie Fratellini, all the girls he could have married appear begowned beside him at the ceremony; his best friend gives worldly advice on how to handle that 15-year-itch when miniskirted, barely legal secretary Nicole Calfan is hired: as old ladies’ gossip escalates, so do the reenactments of the original, innocent encounter; as Pierre finally dates his young secretary, shop talk ages him before her eyes; and, in a fabulous dream sequence, Etaix’s bed suddenly takes off down the road, stopping to pick up a nightied Courcel and whizzing past other beds stopped for repairs, having accidents, or carrying aromatic farm debris.
