Plot Summary
Before signing a marriage license binding him to his well-to-do fiancée, Viviane Duverger (Sara Forestier), Parisian playboy Fernand de Bois d'Enghien (Charles Berling) must break the news to his mistress, Lucette Gautier (Emmanuelle Béart). But when d'Enghien calls on Gautier to meet for one last romp, he becomes increasingly concerned that one of the wedding guests -- possibly Viviane's skeptical mother, the Baroness Duverger (Dominique Blanc) -- will find him out.
