Gueule d'amour Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

The English-language title of this French slice-of-life drama is [[Feature~V152002~Lady Killer~ladykiller]], an apt description of anti-hero Lucien ([[Performer~P25439~Jean Gabin~jeangabin]]). A colonial cavalry officer, Lucien gives his love to whomever he fancies, then forgets about them as he moves from post to post. The one he can't forget is Madeline ([[Performer~P3555~Mireille Balin~mireillebalin]]), and the feeling is mutual. Years later, Lucien is the wretched, embittered proprietor of a rundown Parisian café. Who should come back into his life but Madeline -- a reunion that ends tragically for them both, literalizing the film's title and leaving Lucien even more devastated than before. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
