    L'Amour d'une Femme
    L'Amour d'une Femme (The Love of a Woman) stars Micheline Presle as a woman doctor named Marie. Dispatched to a small coastal island to tend to the needs of the residents, Marie must first overcome the local male population's built-in misogynism. Gradually, she convinces everyone that she's as qualified for her job as any man. The community nearly loses Marie when she falls in love with a visiting engineer named Andre (Massimo Girotti), but she elects to do The Right Thing by the final fadeout. A bit hokey in the dialogue passages, L'Amour d'une Femme succeeds thanks to the winning performance of Micheline Presle and the evocative location photography of Rene Wheeler. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
