Synopsis

The lucky Baron wins a boat in a card game and takes off with his former lover to find new adventures. Adverse circumstances land them in a small town, where the Baron’s seafaring companion leaves for more attractive scenery offered by a wealthy local man.

Our take

An ever-charming Jean Gabin leads the charge in this stylishly lean romantic drama, based on a story by Maigret author Georges Simenon. Against the backdrop of winemaking in Champagne and gambling dens in Monte Carlo, watch as sparks fly and debts are settled.
