The Provence, somewhere in the 1950's. Paul Verdier, traveling salesman, leaves his home and his quarrelsome wife for his weekly round. On the train he meets a young woman, Marie, who looks a little lost. No wonder. Marie is pregnant but lacks the customary husband. She's returning to her village but is not exactly looking forward to the confrontation with her parents and the villagers, all pretty conservative people. After getting to know Paul a little better (for which there is ample time during the trip by train and bus) Marie decides to ask Paul to act as her husband, just to allay the suspicions of her family. After some hesitating Paul accepts, charmed by the girl and unaware of the complications such is bound to cause to his own life. Written by
The ending of this film is what going to the movies is about
From the opening scene to the final gripping ending, this film held me spellbound throughout. The story was presented in a life-like setting by the excellent cast. This was the first time I got teary-eyed at the end of a film. I saw this film in the early 60s and the ending continually haunts me. This film is what going to the movies is really about.
