Storyline

Edouard Binet, an aimless Frenchman, has been travelling in North Africa for many years, and is sailing to Belgium. En route, he meets Sylvie Baron. He introduces her to Nemrod Lobetoum, a rich Egyptian carrying valuable jewelry, and Sylvie and Nemrod become friends. Their friendship escalates to love, which makes Edouard jealous. Days later, Edouard arrives at a rooming house owned by Mme. Louise Baron, Sylvie's mother, wearing blood-stained clothes. It appears that Nemrod was killed on a train after he arrived in France, but Edouard denies any knowledge of what happened. Sylvie suspects that Edouard is responsible for Nemrod's death, but by now her mother has become Edouard's ally. Written by Polly_Kat

Noiret is la lodger in Signoret's house in the 30's in Belgium.
13 December 2001 | by See all my reviews

I don't agreed with Mr. Maltin's comment of this film saying is talkative and boring,he disqualify a very interesting film in very simple terms. It's true sometimes the characters could be more develop, but it is a very absorbing story very well told of the relationship of two very oppose personalities and how the character of Signoret come to create such a fondness and friendship for Noiret, even when she finds out he is a liar, and a murderer, and a thief. I think it is a very valid film and highly recommended, specially for fans of the marvelous Signoret. It was her last film.
