Legendary filmmaker Jean Renoir?s suspenseful and romantic tale of a beautiful French actress struggling to avoid the deadly politics and forbidden passions of Nazi-occupied France. The drama takes place backstage in a theatre where a play is in progress and the German Gestapo is looking for a French underground leader who they know is hiding there. Mel Ferrer portrays the head of the German occupying forces who renews an unexpected liaison with Leslie Caron, a glamorous star of boulevard farces. Can she ? as she insists in the beginning ? turn her back on politics, turn her back on the war and devote herself solely to her art? Before the play is over, Carola must make a major decision, which is a matter of life and death ? her own.
