Cast: Daniel Gélin, Anne Vernon, Elina Labourdette Pianist Edouard (Gélin) and his wife Caroline (Vernon) are expected at her snobby uncle's house for a party, but an evening-long argument threatens to derail Edouard's plans to wow the fancy party guests with his musical skills. “Has the allure of an American screwball comedy but with increased class-consciousness” (David Mermelstein, The Wall Street Journal).
