Life in an actors' retirement home is given a sentimental treatment by Duvivier in this tale of the home's despairing, partly admirable, and partly pathetic cast of characters. As the home suffers from a severe financial burden, the characters carry their own burdens. The residents include

Francen, whose overly intellectual approach rarely moved his audiences; Jouvet, formerly a famous sex symbol; and the sorrowful Simon, who is determined to keep people from learning that he was merely an understudy. The fine script and the performances of the three chief actors highlight this

poignant memory of the past. (In French; English subtitles.)
