This experimental narrative, a free visualisation suggested by several lines of the eponymous Baudelaire poem, is described by Abel as "a strangely apt companion to the more straightforward En Rade but in a very different mode and context". Leaving her husband and child one evening a woman meets a marine officer in a cabaret. He tells her of his tropical sea voyages, but leaves her when he notices that she is married. Her dreams dashed, she returns home. The film is a visual orchestration, without intertitles, of looks, gestures and objects, mainly in close shots, that were originally accompanied by music appropriate to the cabaret, a representation of the woman's subjective moments that become juxtaposed with those of the officer just before she leaves the cabaret

A starfish symbolizes his yearning for sincere beauty without hidden, destructive qualities
