Feuillere is cast as the older woman who seduces the teenage Beck. Director Autant-Lara felt that he had a subject that would move all those who had experienced young love, and he found both box-office success and critical approval--winning the Grand Prix du Cinema--but his impression of

amorous youth has no sense of passion. He merely provides scandalous entertainment. As such, the film was the target of religious organizations and was banned in both Nice and Chicago, where it was declared to be "immoral and obscene"--which only further increased the box-office take. Autant-Lara

had previously spent some time in court after accusing Roger Leenhardt of plagiarizing his script--a case which Autant-Lara lost. Aurenche and Bost again (as with DIARY OF A COUNTRY PRIEST) took the liberty of altering Colette's novel by adding a lesbian character, who was removed only weeks

before the shooting began. (In French; English subtitles.)
