A typically French film of the period - reeling in the after math of the 60s new-wave genre . We're into the 70s here and a refreshingly liberated gay portrayal in the classic auteur style. The scattered ambivalence for cinematic narrative, together with Paris herself symbolising permission for intellectual irreverence of any rules or boundaries. The film tells something of the lives of a group of young carefree gay adults and filming takes place among the bars, apartments and cruising areas of night time Paris. 

Interestingly it was made in the same year as Jarman's Sebastiane and it makes for a parallel equivalent to his work, evoking something of Jarmans 8mm films of the period and even Sebastiane itself. 

Dated, but interesting partially because it is a little known work.
