A war veteran and his widowed stepmother struggle to come to terms with the past in Alain Resnais's drama about the persistence of memory. The story follows ex-soldier Bernard (Jean-Baptiste Thiérrée), who relives a horrible atrocity he committed during the war. His stepmother, Helene (Delphine Seyrig), can't let go of her former lover (Jean-Pierre Kérien). Alain Resnais (Wild Grass) directs this touching drama.
