Before the Deluge

A Feature film by André Cayatte

Produced by Union Générale Cinématographique (UGC)

Release in France : 26/02/1954

    Synopsis

    A look at the growing anguish after WW2, when a third world war was being discussed, in the fifties. Unable to relate to their parents, and frightened by the bleak future that was left for them, a girl and four boys want to do what Noah did : escape to an island in the sun, on a boat. But their disposable funds are low and they get involved with robbery and murder, which leads them to their standing trial.
