L'amour d'une femme / The Love of a Woman (1953) DVD9
The last feature by French master Jean Gremillon, this 1954 drama brings considerable insight and enormous sensitivity to the predicament of the modern woman. A gifted doctor (Micheline Presle, in a focused and luminous performance) becomes the resident physician on a coastal island, struggles to win the townspeople's respect and affection, then finds herself torn between love and work when her new beau (Massimo Girotti), a handsome engineer, prepares to move on to another job in a new locale. Gremillon wrote very few of his films, but his screenplay here shows a depth of humanity equal to Jean Renoir's.
