Storyline

On the night of their tenth anniversary, Doctor Rene Richard accidentally discovers that his wife, actress Madeleine Richard, has been having an affair with a disturbed artist, Daniel Prevost who has just attempted suicide. He confronts her and she spends the night trying to explain the reasons for her infidelity...he took their marriage for granted, he spent too much time at work, he appeared to be attracted to his pretty assistant and yada, yada, yada...in two languages and some badly-dubbed English. Will he buy this? Will they stay together? Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

the "qualité francaise at its best"
16 March 2001 | by pierrealixSee all my reviews

Morgan and Gabin where the mythical heroes of Marcel Carné's "quai des brumes"paragon of the pre-war poetic movies..(-you have beautiful eyes you know....-kiss me)..15 years later they're back...Morgan is 35 and one of the most beautiful Women of Paris..Gabin is 50 and plays a doctor..we are far from the lost souls of the 1939 movie...he discovers that she's untrue to him (with Daniel Gelin,the french answer to early Brando)...will she ruin her cosy "bourgeois" life to escape with a pennyless artist ?.....Everything is fautless..the direction of actors,the scenario,their actings,the settings....its the "qualite francaise" that dominates the 50s and which will be blown off by Resnais and the "Novelle Vague" in 59.
