After a film of "Nana" is shown in 1914, the young cinema owner BORDENAVE # nephew of the former owner of the disreputable "Théâtre des Variétés" # asks an OLD LADY to tell him all about ... See full summary »
I saw this film as a TV mini series in the mid '70s on a Public Television channel. I thought is was an exciting, interesting depiction of the life of a French courtesan in the late 19th century. It was quite risque at the time, and would not have been shown on American network television. I particularly found Freddie Jones' restrained, yet simmering portrayal of the Count Muffat very affecting. I have been hoping a VHS or DVD of this program exists, but have not yet found it. Hopefully that will change.
