Charles le Temeraire asks in marriage Jeanne de …
Charles le Temeraire asks in marriage Jeanne de Beauvais, daughter of King Louis XI, wishing to get her valuable lands in dowry. The King is wise to this, and since his daughter does not feel inclined to accept, he refuses. Charles sets up a plan to abduct the prince, in a way that the suspicions will fall upon Robert de Neuville, a noble enamoured of the princess. Robert manages to free her from the castle where she was being kept. Charles keeps setting traps, and managing people to perjure against Jeanne, and the King himself. Finally, Jeanne escapes alive from a pack of wolves, who set watching the lady alone in the snow covered woods, instead of attacking her. Charles does yet accuse her of being a witch - wishing to have her dead rather than being the wife of Robert... Robert will be her champion in a Judgement of God. Will the 'miracle of the wolfs' repeat itself, or fearless Charles defeat Robert in the sword duel?

An everyman plays several roles in this film. In his role as narrator of the story presented, he is aware that he is in a movie, he often breaking that fourth wall. In that role, he spends much of his time operating a carousel to match the story that he is about to tell which has at its core a round. He also dons several, what he calls "disguises", inserting himself in the story often acting as the puppet-master to manipulate the characters to do what is truly in their hearts, and to move the story along to ensure that it doesn't get stalled by the stray activities of any one character. The story, which takes place in 1900 Vienna, is about the pursuit of love. The narrator will not feel that the story is complete until the circle, or the round, has been achieved. The story begins with Léocadie, a prostitute, negotiating, on the streets, the terms of her potential encounter with Franz, a soldier; who, in turn, has a chance encounter at a dance hall with Marie, a chambermaid; who, in turn, meets, in a new working assignment, Alfred, the amorous yet shy on the surface son of her employers; who, in turn, has an on-going clandestine relationship with Emma Breitkopf, a society matron; who, in turn, embarks in "pillow talk" about their relationship with her long standing well-off husband, Charles Breitkopf; who, in turn, has dinner in a private room of a restaurant with Anna, a working class girl; who, in turn, has a hotel encounter described by Charles as their fantasy next encounter, but instead with Robert Kuhlenkampf, a poet; who, in turn, goes backstage at a theater to meet up with a longtime friend, Charlotte, an actress; who, in turn, is visited in her boudoir by a fan who saw her perform, he a count; who in turn, on a drunken spree, falls into the arms of a prostitute named Léocadie. In this one regard, the narrator is satisfied in that the circle of love of has been completed.

For t'ain't no time before clashing personalities, petty jealousy, violence and---that old demon---love create havoc. And isn't much longer before they become re-united in the face of an avalanche that threatens to destroy them. They all return to whence they came, sadder and wiser.
