Cast & Crew
Sophie, a Parisian cover girl, discovers that Philippe, the photographer with whom she is in love, has been two-timing her with Barbara, an American heiress. Alain, a medical student, suggests that Sophie sleep with him to make Philippe jealous, but she decides to shoot Barbara the same way that her Corsican grandmother got rid of a rival. Meanwhile, Alain warns Philippe, who leaves with Barbara for the Swiss Alps. Sophie and Alain follow them, the latter still trying unsuccessfully to win Sophie's affections. After several fruitless attempts to win back Philippe, Sophie convinces Barbara that he is only after her money; Philippe, in turn, convinces Sophie that Alain's intentions are dishonorable. The women then team up against the men. Sophie realizes that she loves Alain when he threatens her with her own shotgun and forces her to disrobe.
