Coming Back From Africa

Release in France : 20/09/1973

    Synopsis

    Françoise and Vincent have grown tired of the stuffy, constrained and overly commercial quality of life in Geneva. With the help of a friend, they hope to move to Algeria and do something really different in a different place. They sell practically everything they own in preparation for the journey. Then they get a telegram from their friend urging them to stay put for a little while: a letter explaining things further is on its way. While they wait, they begin to think that the problem may not be with Geneva itself, but with their own sense of what is possible there. They decide to stay and make changes in their own lives.
