It was not the first time Claude Autant-Lara had broached the impossible love subject.His "le diable au corps " from Raymond Radiguet remains one of the great classics of the French cinema.It's not good news this time.
WW2,in occupied Brittany:a military German woman comes to visit her husband ,a Kommandatur officer .She is billeted on a local inhabitant ,a widow (Françoise Rosay) ,whose son is part of the resistance fighters .What will happen next?Shall I have to spell it out? The best sequence is the depiction of the réveillon (Christmas's eve dinner) at the German military command.But it is impossible to believe in the two lovers' impossible love.
Autant-Lara did not probably like this job.He was about to make his most daring work ,"Tu ne tueras point", which featured two of the actors of "le bois des amants" ,Laurent Terzieff and Horst Frank.
