| The best movie directed by Jean Gourguet.
Written by Jean-Paul le Chanois, "Son dernier rôle" is the best movie directed by Jean Gourguet (with "Rayon de soleil" directed in 1929, a sunday in Paris and suburb shot on location, just like "les Hommes le dimanche" shot by Wilder, Ulmer, Zinnemann,.. a few months later). It's a fine melodrama about an actress with success (excellent Gaby Morlay). She meets a doctor who tells her about a serious desease and who falls in love with her. Bored by her jealous husband (excellent Marcel Dalio), she leaves to the mountains in a pension held by Jean Tissier (also excellent) , who also falls in love with her. Will destiny help her to find love again? There're 2 unusual fast scenes that make that film an excellent and original melodrama. To discover.
