About

A funny and warm polemical comedy that celebrates the political and social values of the Paris demonstrations of May 1968. Eight individuals - an office worker, a labourer and his wife, a smallholder and his wife, a teacher, a supermarket cashier and a journalist - are drawn together in Geneva in an attempt to find a different way of living life, beyond the grip of capitalism.

In a nutshell

Although politics and the class struggle are never far from the action of the film (some black-and-white sections fairly smack you round the head with left-wing ideology), its shining strengths are the quirkiness and the charm of the characters' stories.
