The Tender Enemy

A Feature film by Max Ophuls

Produced by Eden Productions

Release in France : 24/10/1936


    Years ago, Annette Dupont (Simone Berriau) married a man she didn't love for financial security. Now, Annette's grown daughter (Jacqueline Daix) is about to make the same mistake. Hoping to prevent this are the ghosts of Annette's deceased lovers, who return to earth to guide the daughter onto the right path in life. As a bonus, the three spirits produce the "right man" for the girl, as if by magic.
