Jean, a hardheaded banker, is invited to a casino by a colleague and wins big. Suddenly loaded with cash and transformed into a compulsive gambler, Jean begins spending his days at the casino while rooming on the cheap in the coastal city of Nice. One day he meets the beautiful blonde Jackie, also a casino denizen, and they start to operate together.
A man who falls into the games’ world of intuition and momentum, and the woman who fascinates him. A romantic drama depicting the elegant and decadent summer escapism of men and women hooked on games of chance. Michel Legrand’s lush score sweetens and brightens the mood of the film.
