Included on 2-disc box set Early Short Films of the French New Wave.

A slice-of-life film shot in a small-town cafe/hotel in Northern France. Older men smoke, drink beer and read the paper; young lovers gaze into each other’s eyes, and regulars play cards, while the owner blusters on the phone with potential banquet customers. Meanwhile, from behind the counter, the quiet woman who does the work of ensuring the place runs smoothly keeps watch—and occasionally sneaks a glance at the newspaper herself.
