Movie Info

Franois, a young student working nights as a postman, is in love with a slightly older woman, Anne. One day, he sees Anne's former lover, a pilot named Christian, leaving Anne's apartment in the morning. Despite Anne's explanation that Christian is now married to another woman and simply dropped by to talk, Franois becomes jealous. He starts spying on Christian in order to find out if his rival secretly sees Anne. Though Franois sees Christian meeting a different woman, he keeps following the pair. His pursuit leads him to a park where he meets up with a vivacious teenage girl named Lucie, who becomes curious about his motives and agrees to help him in his detection. ~ Yuri German, Rovi
