A shimmering glass hotel at the top of a remote Provençal mountain provides the setting for a tragi-comic tapestry about an obsessive love pentangle, whose principals range from an artist to a hotel manager and to a dam worker. 

Scripted by Jacques Prévert and Pierre Laroche, the film was banned from cinemas for the duration of the Occupation for its dark portrayal of the hedonistic excesses of the ruling class. Today, it is often singled out as Jean Grémillon’s greatest achievement. It was shot at the Victorine Studios in Nice and on location at Soursac in the Dordogne.
