European star charisma.
13 September 2002 | by (Kaarina) – See all my reviews

A pleasant French melodrama starring Dietrich and Gabin. Above average because of the great chemistry of the stars, although it must be mentioned that the script does not allow Dietrich to reach her very best.

Also notable for its social theme, the issues that make romance impossible are small town prejudices and class barriers.

Slightly overlong and slowly paced and with a silly moral climax, yet worth a look for those who like Dietrich and/ or old Hollywood melodramas.
