Synopsis / Plot
Although he is approaching forty, Alain, a lawyer, lives a muddled life. Although he is in a gay relationship with a much younger man, Christophe, he is attracted to women, and they find him attractive. One day, he sleeps with a fellow lawyer, Laurence, but it soon becomes clear that there is no mileage, or passion, in their relationship - in spite of the fact that Laurence becomes pregnant as a consequence. To keep up appearances, Laurence and Alain agree to marry, but Alain has by this stage fallen in love with on of his clients, a convicted murder named Marc. Hoping to please Marc, Alain agrees to try to persuade his girlfriend, Babette, to visit him in prison. Things do not go as planned: Babette falls in love with Alain and Alain ends up having to choose between the emotionally unstable Babette, his pregnant wife Laurence, and his adoring gay lover Christophe...
