Storyline

During World War II, an acting company in occupied Paris is notified that a German officer will be stopping by to see their play. The stage manager--who also happens to be the lover of Carola, the lead actress--asks her to "play up" to the visiting German for the good of the play, but when the officer arrives, it becomes clear to the manager that the German and Carola have had a previous relationship, and that she is still in love with him.

Beautiful translation of Jean Renoir's script is hampered a bit by its stage confines and acting levels, but manages to be exciting nonetheless because of its situations. Leslie Caron manages to overcome the need to be heard in the back of the theater in the title role, but the other actors fail to overcome the limitations.
