    Synopsis

    Pierre (Gérard Philipe) escapes to a coastal village in Northern France after accidentally killing a famous singer.

Instead, the grotesque pettiness of the local townsfolk, the duplicity of friends and "loved ones," and the relentlessly rotten weather conjoin to drive Pierre to desperation.
