Miou-Miou as a hardworking Frenchwoman who divides her time between one family (headed by schoolteacher Eddy Mitchell) in Trouville and another (papa is an airline pilot played by the exhaustingly outgoing Roger Hanin) in Paris. Directed by Georges Lautner, one of France's most successful commercial filmmakers, and written by sleekly specious Jean-Loup Dabadie (Cesar and Rosalie, Pardon mon affaire), it's a polished, faintly old-fashioned women's picture, packed with tastefully restrained emotional crises. Its only oddity, and it's a whopper, lies in the filmmakers' decision to delay the exposition until minutes before the climax—you aren't told what's going on until it's almost over (1983).
