The first feature film by the co-founder of Cahiers du Cinéma is a hedonistic marivaudage that is in keeping with the spirit of the times, marked by a certain liberation of morals that is synchronous with the liberation of cinematographic language characteristic of the New Wave. Serge Gainsbourg's song, which bears the same title and is the leitmotif of the film, took on a life of its own in France.
