La Maternelle
La Maternelle (The Maternal One) was adapted by co-director Jean Benoit-Levy from the novel by Leon Fraple. Madeline Renaud stars as Rose, a girl from a good family who is left broke and homeless by a series of devastating reverses. Obliged to find work, Rose is hired as an attendant at a Parisian day-care center. Here she proves an ideal surrogate mother, gently commanding love and devotion from her juvenile charges. One little girl, the deserted daughter of a prostitute, becomes so attached to Rose that she attempts to kill herself when Rose announces her plans to marry Dr. Libois (Henri Debain). Despite this devastating plot development, La Maternelle manages to find its way to a happy ending. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
