Nice Scenery & Setting; Fair Story
6 August 2001 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

This movie has a nicely done setting in Switzerland that makes up to some degree for a slow and rather drab plot. It also benefits from some pretty good leading players in Madeleine Carroll and Ian Hunter.

The story takes place in a Swiss town where quite a few French children have found refuge during the war. An innkeeper couple (Carroll and Michael Rennie) disagree with each other about whether to adopt the orphaned French boy who has been staying with them, and they spend much of the film in a battle of wills. Hunter is a well-meaning doctor trying to prevent any unpleasantness.

The Swiss setting is nicely done with good photography, and the little town, the inn, and the mountains work well. The story itself is believable, but just not very eventful except for a couple of good dramatic moments. Overall it is an average film, mostly worthwhile for the scenery and setting.
