Interviewed during the Summer of 1968, the French speak their minds about eroticism, art, violence, advertising, man's trip to the moon and other topical subjects. A bitter look at the state of late 1960s France where the interviews and statements are skillfully edited into a sort of unwittingly surrealist comedy; a ferociously violent critical reception and commercial disaster effectively killed its author's career as a film director.
