L’Amour d’une femme
Dir. Jean Grémillon. 1954, 103 mins. 35mm. With Micheline Presle, Massimo Girotti, Gaby Morlay. On Ouessant, a small island off the Brittany coast, a female doctor must deal with the prejudices of the insular villagers whom she hopes to help, and of the Italian engineer whom she loves. This radiant, deeply melancholy swan song offers further evidence of Grémillon’s protofeminist concerns.
