Synopsis

Philippe Clarence runs a successful fashion house in Paris, but he is also a shameful womaniser. When he learns that his fabric supplier, Daniel, is engaged to be married, he flirts with the future bride, Micheline. However, Micheline falls instantly in love with Philippe.

Our take

Our next immersion into the vibrant group dynamics of French master orchestrator Jacques Becker turns from the crimes of Paris to high fashion. An energetic, remarkably realistic portrayal of the cultural scene in the 1940s, its legacy can be felt in everything from Funny Face to Saint Laurent.
