Les Carabiniers met en scène deux hommes pauvres appelés pour se battre à la guerre et qu'on trompe en leur promettant toutes les richesses du monde. Ulysse (Marino Masè) et Michelangelo (Albert Juross) reçoivent du roi de leur pays fictif des lettres qui leur accordent une liberté complète tant qu'ils se battront : ils auront tout ce qu'ils désirent : piscines, Maseratis, femmes – et le tout aux frais de l'ennemi. Ils quittent tous les deux leurs épouses (Catherine Ribeiro et Geneviève Galéa) et traversent champs de bataille et villages, en détruisant et pillant tout leur saoul. Ils racontent leurs exploits à leurs femmes sur des cartes postales qu'ils leur envoient, en rapportant les horreurs des batailles. La représentation idéaliste qu'ils se faisaient de la guerre s'en va en morceaux car ils sont toujours pauvres et maintenant blessés.

Raoul Maury, un inspecteur de police mis à l’écart par sa hiérarchie pour avoir voulu jadis continuer une enquête dérangeante à l'égard de certains politiciens influents, a sombré dans l’alcoolisme. Isabelle, son épouse désabusée, tente en vain de le ramener à la raison. Ses collègues qui surveillent l’ex-sergent Donetti appartenant au gang du commandant Capra, un gang composé d’anciens mercenaires tombés dans l’illégalité, aperçoivent ce suspect qui aborde justement Maury. En réalité, Donetti a cru reconnaître en Maury le lieutenant Kieffer, leur ancien compagnon d’armes, et Maury, homme désormais déchu et isolé, serait donc un renfort inespéré pour Capra dont l’équipe vient d’être décimée par les forces de l’ordre. Les chefs de Maury, de leur côté, y voient l’occasion d’infiltrer ce gang par son intermédiaire. De plus, Maury aurait ainsi la chance de reprendre du galon. Le plan est d’éliminer proprement Capra avant qu’il ne parle car il est détenteur de secrets politiques trop compromettants pour le pouvoir en place. Cependant, Capra qui ne connaît pas directement Kieffer qu’il sait normalement réfugié au Venezuela, est d’abord déterminé à éprouver cette dernière recrue.

Two young women travel by car through the Auvergne. Having run out of gas near an odd village, they spend the night in a barn where they make love. The next morning, Anna is gone and a dwarf in medieval garb guides Françoise through a forest (later identified as Brocéliande) to a lake, where a magic canoe carries her to an island, and then to a castle where scantily clad women frolic and kiss, overseen by the dwarf Gurth. Françoise is interviewed by Morgan le Fay and bathed by some of her women. Gurth reveals in a monologue that he procures the women for Morgan and has aspirations to take over.

The film narrates a utopian abandonment, consensual and festive of the market economy and high productivity. The population decides on a number of resolutions beginning with "We stop everything" and the second "After a total downtime will be revived—reluctantly—that the services and products including lack will prove intolerable. Probably: water to drink, electricity for reading at night, the TSF to say "This is not the end of the world, this is an 01, and now a page of Celestial Mechanics". The implementation of these resolutions is the first day of a new era, Year 01. The Year 01 is emblematic of the challenge of the 1970s and covers such diverse topics as ecology, negation of authority, free love, communal living, rejection of private property and labor.
