Film details


Comedy. Pierette is a married woman who, having lived in the rarified yet stifling luxury of an elegant home in Switzerland complete with a husband she no longer cares for, flies the coop for a new life in Paris. Within the space of a very short time, she manages to find a job at a school, fall in love with a priest, meet up with her childhood friend, and renew her relationship with her daughter, who has been living for some time with Pierette's first husband.
