Tracked down a copy of this because it is one of Jean-Pierre Gorin's last film credits. He shares the story credit with Patrick Amos, who co-wrote Routine Pleasures back in '86 (which Gorin directed).

A tragic film about skin care. No matter the defenses, there will be sunburns and wrinkles and age. Even the immaculate Jean Seberg slathers face cream onto her cheeks.

Privileged moment: the maid chugging a beer at the extreme left edge, as main characters natter about a casino in the middle ground.
