Life's Little Treasures

A Feature film by Michel Deville

Produced by Éléfilm

Release in France : 12/01/1994

    Synopsis

    The scene is a summer house, being re-opened in spring by four women (in the presence of a few men) over a four-and-a-half-day period. They are all forty, an age when people are supposed to have made it, when life's die is cast. But life, full of unflagging desire and doubt, means constant questioning and seeking.
    Ariane and Pierre have been married for twenty years. They are extremely close, always in cahoots. Perhaps too close, too much in cahoots to leave any room for the new and unexpected.
    Sabine is married to Matthieu. She wants a child, he doesn't. Why not ?
    Léna mourns. She can't let go of Bertrand, her husband, who never quite manages to leave her. Where will she find happiness ? With bertrand ? With her young lover, Marc ? With both of them, or alone ?
    Then comes Hélène. She wants to find a man she met twenty-five years earlier but has not seen since - her first love. It seems like a good idea, so everyone joins in the search, which becomes a game and a way of seeking one's own self...
