I recently scored a copy of this movie based entirely upon the 1970 review by Roger Greenspun of the New York Times, and I must say that I am very happy to have done so. Although filmed in 1959, this film has the look and feel of something filmed much earlier. I would compare its video quality to an unrestored copy of "Rome, Open City" (Roberto Rossellini), which was filmed during the war years. The plot centers on the troubles and travails of a mother and daughter recently relocated to Paris and at the end of their financial rope. The performance by Micheline Bezancon as the mother is absolutely believable. If you get a chance to see this film, do so. You won't be disappointed, and its running time of 68 minutes goes all too quickly.
