Le retour d'Afrique / Return From Africa (1973) DVD5
Vincent (Francois Marthouret) and his wife Francoise, (Josee Destoop) are young, in love with each other, and thoroughly fed up with their roles as witnesses to great endeavors in other parts of the world, more specifically, the Third World. They decide to go to Africa and write to a friend there, who advises them to come. So they sell their car and furniture and hold a farewell party in the empty fiat. Then a letter arrives telling them not to come and to wait for further instructions.
For several days they wait in the empty flat, unwilling to let their friends know about the fiasco. They begin to lose their appetite for sex and take-away food, and discover the disadvantages of isolation. They go to Africa, but only in imagination. They "return" several weeks later with a new relationship to each other and their future...
