...to pull it off! This is melodrama in all its splendor or all its horror depending on whom you ask.
The two main characters are absolutely implausible .Anielle (Dubois) is a "modern" mother with a racy past:an alcoholic husband she left a long time ago and a beloved son who was conceived in a brothel.Doctor Soltier (Guiomar) is a saint of a doctor,so devoted to his work he runs after his desperate patient who has not showed up to his kidney dialysis .
Victim of a motorbike crash,Olivier,Anielle's son is dying in a hospital.His kidneys could save another life.But the doctor Soltier has to ask Anielle .As I said,Douglas Sirk might have turned this maudlin script into a flamboyant melodrama.Serge Korber's work is nothing but Harlequin Romance.
