A romantic man (Trintignant) meets in "La Salle Des Pas Perdus" (lost steps concourse)in a railway station ,an attractive woman (Morgan)about ten years his senior;it's love at first sight between the bourgeois woman and the painter of hot cinema posters ("make it dirty,smutty ",says his dirty old man boss.
The plot is rather trite ,and hadn't it been for the actors,it would have been almost worthless;but apart from the two attractive principals ,there is also Jean Carmet ,as Trintignant's pal ,Catherine Rouvel ,as a Hungarish model and Michel Vitold,in the thankless part of the cheated husband who manages to retain his dignity.
In "Paris Au Mois D'Aout " ,another of René Fallet's novel ,the sexes are reversed : it's the forty-something bourgeois (Charles Aznavour) who meets a pretty young English girl (Susan Hampshire)In both movies ,it's a doomed love : too many social barriers ,and in both stories,one of the lovers is married.
