Storyline

Young, handsome, dashing but cynical, Octave Mouret arrives in Paris, determined to conquer the belles of the capital. His first attempts are not too successful though as he is rebuffed by Valérie Vabre, the neurotic wife of the landlord of the block of flats he is accommodated in. As for the affair he starts with Caroline Hédouin, the married owner of "Au Bonheur des Dames", the shop where he works, the least we can say is that it lacks passion. But he does seduce Berthe, a girl he refused to marry when her mother tried to force her on him, now that she is married with another. He will finally achieve his end when Caroline, now widowed and needing a man to help her manage her business, asks him... to marry her! Written by Guy Bellinger

User Reviews

As François Truffaut once said:
17 May 2002 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

"Pot-Bouille is not a film d'auteur. On the contrary. It is quite clearly a literary work written by one person and filmed by someone diametrically the opposite. Nevertheless, Jeanson's ferocity and verve, multiplied by Duvivier's obstinate gentleness, result in something pleasant and unusual."

  • François Truffaut, Cahiers du Cinéma, Dec., 1957.
