Synopsis:
Jacques Becker's dark, offbeat comedy about a failing marriage stars Daniel Gelin as Edouard, a poor pianist married to Caroline (Anne Vernon), a beautiful girl from a middle-class family. Caroline's uncle Claude (Jean Galland), a complete snob who looks down on Edouard like the rest of his family, invites the couple to a party at which he is expected to play for his supper in front of Claude's important friends. Add the fact that Claude's son Alain (Jacques Francois) is in love with Caroline and this evening is destined for disaster.

Back to the Fifties - Edward and Caroline review by KG

Spoiler Alert
18/11/2020

When this film appeared in the early Fifties I was at university and it rapidly became a cult in so far as everyone I knew went to see it at the Arts Cinema.   What can be said about it now?  Only that they don't make 'em like that any more.
