A disfigured girl marries a broad ruffian who loves her for what she is. Plastic surgery will change their life and change this sensible and cultured working class girl into a "femme du monde"... He does not accept it... she escapes him...
But matrimonial duties are strong and, remorseful, she turns her back to a mundane future and flies back to him.
This movie is about solidarity, it is also about an intelligent woman's condition in an ordinary French milieu. Bourvil did not let her down when she was ugly, Michèle Morgan will not let him down because surgery miraculously turned her into a beautiful woman.
The characters are very well interpreted and their parts are impeccable. I don't know of any remake so far... the theme is nevertheless very actual, quite feminist and would adapt marvelously to our world where one's physical appearance tends to have more importance than one's intellect...
