Vintage/Masterpiece: Black and white French drama following two separate couples and their stories of love and murder are told here quite poignantly.

A married woman has put her lover up to killing her very rich and well connected husband so that they can run off together. As he sets about his task she waits for him, but he doesn’t show and she cannot find him.

Florence (Jeanne Moreau) is married to the wealthy arms dealer Simon Carala (Jean Wall), but is carrying on a torrid affair with one of her husband’s employees, Julien (Maurice Ronet). Julien daringly climbs into Simon’s office on a rope, kills him and leaves unnoticed. However, Julien accidentally leaves the rope at the crime scene and realizes he must retrieve it. On his way out, he becomes stuck in the building’s elevator. But he soon finds that his bad luck is just beginning.
