Caracas, Venezuela. Just after her engagement to Vittorio, Nelly runs away. As he pursues her, Nelly looks to Martin, a French middle-aged man she met by accident, for help. He drives her to the airport and gives her a plane ticket to Paris. Then he thinks he can go back to his peaceful, lonely life on his island. Of course, he is wrong. —Yepok
Scent Of A Woman
Recipe for escapist film: Take one top writer (Jean-Loup Dabadou), add one top director (Jean-Paul Rappeneau), season with a brace of A-list vedettes (Yves Montand, Catherine Deneuve), and a dash of screwball and voila! Eat! Enjoy! A guy who has quit the perfume business and found that the Grasse is greener in the islands, a gal running away from a vitriolic Italian, a stolen Lautrec, a bearded Montand, a gorgeous Deneuve, an island idyll. What more do you want. You DO want more? Gee, some people are NEVER satisfied. How about Tony Roberts doing the Tony Randall/Gig Young stooge to Doris Day-James Garner-Rock Hudson spot and proving up to snuff. NOW will you go see it and do yourself a favor. This is a million miles away from Godard pretentiousness and all the better for it. 9/10
