    • Synopsis
    • A married engineer who's running for parliament in switzerland becomes obsessed by a waitress whom he glimpses at a railroad café. He pursues her, they revel in their sexual affinities, he loses the election (but doesn't care), he wants to marry her, and she leaves him.
      The movie takes a profound, tough subtle, stand against treating women as objects. It tackles (through a love story) the divides between rich and poor (particularly the weathly North and the immigrant South) and between men and women.
