The Wretches

A Feature film by Robert Hossein

Produced by Les Productions Francis Lopez, Marceau-Cocinor

Release in France : 09/05/1960

    Synopsis

    Thelma and Jess, an American couple who move into a down-at-the-heels Paris neighborhood, are still suffering from the loss of their only son in an automobile accident that happened some time in the distant past. Thelma tends to drown her sorrows in alcohol, while Jess is introspected and morose. After they hire a maid to help out with the housework, she falls for the taciturn Jess. Her interest seems to be only a simple attraction, yet appearances, as it turns out, are deceiving.
