Storyline

Following a long tradition, all members of a family convene in the same old house to spend their summer holidays. For 15-years old Jacques, this should again be the time to play with the children of relatives, or to stroll in the surroundings dotted with Roman ruins - were it not for his incipient love towards his cousin Juliette. The world of Jacques is further disrupted by the arrival of Aunt Odette, a dashing young divorcée, who quickly enthralls his father. And then there is Mr. Gabard, the agent sent by a property developer to investigate the possible acquisition of the vast estate whose maintenance is straining the means of the family...

Undistinguished French post war drama
3 June 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Too long and spending too much time with unpersonable middle aged players in freshly pressed outfits, this one lobs with the other draggy forgotten French feature films of the forties, despite the reverence which the New Wave film makers had for it. However in a couple of scenes - Francois' farewell both to Versois and to his youth at the tower at dawn - it does snap into life.

Bernard's score is the best of the elements provided by the French A feature technicians of the day.

The character telling Versois that she will never again be as impressive as she is then as a teen age girl came to have a resonance with her later career.
