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

Catch A Falling Star
4 December 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

The swan song of the great Simone Signoret - she lived another three years but never made another movie - teams her with the equally great Noiret in a script by yet another great, Jean Aurenche, adapted from a Simenon novel. If you like period detail (30s) strong atmosphere and top-drawer emoting then what are you waiting for. The bizarre melange of Eygpt and Belgium make for a sort of Turkish Delight of an movie. Gorge! Enjoy!
