A twist on the Pygmalion theme has Morgan as a homely but sensitive and intelligent girl. She marries an oafish school teacher, though she is really in love with her brother-in-law. When her husband is involved in an auto accident with a plastic surgeon, the doctor agrees to redo Morgan's

face as compensation, giving Morgan the face she really deserves. With her new looks, she is able to find true love, but her husband is driven to killing the doctor who performed the surgery. The filmmakers do a fine job of delving into the problems people face when a fairy tale-like

transformation takes place, though the film suffers from an over-analysis of the situation. Also, Morgan is too glamorous to pull off the type of physical transformation that occurs. (In French; English subtitles.)
