La Femme de Rose Hill Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

After moving to Switzerland to be the mail-order bride of an uncouth middle-aged Swiss man, Julie (Marie Gaydu), who comes from an island in the Indian Ocean, discovers that she cannot bear the man. After she leaves him, she embarks on an affair with Jean (Jean-Philippe Escoffey), the son of a local brickworks owner, much to the distress of that man's father. For a while their romance goes relatively smoothly, until the boy discovers that she is pregnant and won't submit to an abortion. Frantic, he goes haring off to some other country for a while. When he gets back, he gets hysterical about seeing their child. In this melodrama, when he finally decides to send Julie and her baby back to their remote homeland, the situation doesn't turn out well. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi
