Emile the African

Émile l'Africain

Directed by Robert Vernay
France, 1948


Emile Boulard is a props man in a Paris movie studio. He has a wife, Suzanne. Or to be more accurate, let’s say he HAD a wife since she left him fifteen years before, allegedly… to go buy a post stamp. But now that their daughter Martine, who lives with her, is old enough to marry, she resurfaces.
