With an introduction by Howie Movshovitz

A French gardener (Michel Simon) and his wife (Germaine Reuver) have been married 30 years. They hate each other, and each considers how to do in the other. A dark and bitter comedy about marriage and the horrors of French justice, perhaps inspired by the wrongful charges of collaboration director Guitry had to endure after World War II.
