Storyline

When she arrives in the French region of Champagne in the company of her mother, her two sisters and her brother, sixteen-year-old Joss Grey is still just a teen-ager. At the time of her return to England, she has become a woman... What has happened is that Mrs. Grey fell ill at the beginning of their stay and was sent to hospital leaving the foursome in the care of Madame Zizi, the manager of the hotel where they are staying. She has a lover, Eliot, who gets lodging there. Unaware of the bond between him and the proprietor, Joss develops the attraction to the forty-year-old man. Eliot is so friendly... Eliot is so handsome... A bit enigmatic perhaps, but so charming... Written by Guy Bellinger

Kenneth More at his pinnacle
29 May 2000 | by (Montclair, NJ) – See all my reviews

More More is what I said after viewing his virtuoso performance, and Susannah York and Danielle Darrieux match him, exchange for exchange. Truer emotions were never shared on screen. This is an excellent directing effort by the underrated Gilbert, truly one of the all-time greats. The story never loses its originality or its delicate sense of balance. I have now seen this film four times, and each time I love it that much more.
