Summer 1969 on the Mediterranean coast. Paul and Vincent are childhood buddies. On a beach one day, they meet Alice and her friend Eve. After a series of memorable adventures, couples fall into place but not quite in the right order. Alice blossoms elsewhere, Paul marries Eve and Vincent weds Marie. The 70s are in full swing. Thanks to the pill, womens’s lives change radically, sexology is in, feminist’s voices can be heard loud and clear but unrestricted and free access to abortion has yet to be attained. Against the backdrop of a decade marked by sexual liberation, these three girls and two boys will cross each other’s paths, love one another, split up and reunite.


Magic moments, magnificent, memorable encounters with people of all generations, people who experienced or were going to experience that notoriously enchanted interlude.

Days of exciting work. Wrap-ups at dawn. The difficult return to Paris. Women in rebellion at the National Assembly. Tormented love affairs. But Michel never lost his calm, was never judgmental. His simply recounted this story of “an enchanted interlude.”

Clotilde Courau, actress
