A wallet lost and found opens the door - just a crack - to romantic adventure for Georges and Marguerite. After examing the ID papers of its owner, it is not a simple matter for Georges to turn the red wallet he found in to the police. Nor is it that Marguerite can recover her wallet withoug being piqued with curiosity about whom it was who found it. As they navigate the social protocols of giving and acknowledging thanks, turbulence enters their otherwise quotidian lives.

2010 Guide Analysis: "French New Wave veteran Alain Resnais ("Private Fears in Public Places") helms this old-fashioned idiosyncratic romantic fantasy about indecisive people whose hesitancy is their biggest obstacle to finding happiness. Reviews out of various film festivals last year have been mixed despite the talent in front of and behind the camera. Mathieu Amalric's work as a desk cop scored notices for its humanism, but otherwise Resnais goes confidently off on his own increasingly bizarre tangents which arthouse fans will adore but will alienate those not familiar with his work."
