Most of the dialog was supposedly ad-libbed during the actual shooting of this Canadian drama. Jutra is an intellectual who encounters the alluring Johanne, a black model, at a party in Montreal. The pair engage in an affair, and she becomes pregnant. Jutra considers but rejects the idea

of marriage, as it would cost him his freedom. Johanne loses the child, and he ends the affair, returning to what he loves best, making laughter for the world through his writing. This unconventional film, made in 1962, was originally shot in 16mm. It makes a statement about his egotistical

concerns during a real or imaginary affair. There is some confusion over who was responsible for the English narration added to the film. Some sources credit poet-musician Leonard Cohen, while others seem to credit Jutra. (In French; English subtitles.)
