France, 1940s. The French Riviera has not yet fallen into the hands of the Nazis: An Austrian Jewish surgeon found refuge in a villa on the Cote d'Azur. There, he heals an Italian pianist and gets acquainted with his mistress, Countess Francesca. While waiting to go to England, he operates clandestinely in the clinic of the friend who hosts him. Soon he becomes Francesca's lover. But gradually the aging doctor falls in love with her daughter, Laura, who is only 13 years old.
I just saw the film, and i am still surprised that it's rarely passed on television, an excellent combination of love and tragedy, just what my brain needed, a fine, too fine piece of art.If you are addicted to that kind if movie, i recommend "Sparrow".
