Plot

Jacques, a composer serving as a fighter pilot during the First World War, asks his friend Julien, a Luxembourger working as a music journalist in Paris, to meet him at Bray behind the front lines. His family’s country house is there, looked after by a solitary housekeeper. Jacques has not arrived when Julien turns up and is let in by the beautiful but largely silent woman. While she prepares him dinner, he reflects on the ups and downs of his life in Paris before the war with the charming rich Jacques and his vivacious girl friend Odile. After showing him to a bedroom, the servant spends the night with him. In the morning, he rushes off to the railway station but does not board the Paris train. Something, we do not know what, impels him to stay.
