Bernard Buffet illustrated Jean Cocteau’s La Voix Humaine (1957).

Synopsis: A young woman is engaged in a telephone call with her lover of five years. He has abandoned her and is to marry another woman the following day. This is the last time they will speak to each other. During the conversation, we learn that the woman has attempted suicide. The phone service in Paris being notoriously poor during that era, they are interrupted several times during the agonizing conversation. — from: http://www.idimage.be
