Screenwriter Paul Javal's marriage to his wife Camille disintegrates during movie production as she spends time with the producer. Layered conflicts between art and business ensue.

Movie Reviews (401-450) (50 movies items)

" My favorite of the two "film within a film" productions that were made in 1963. A beautiful art movie that has a surprising role for director Fritz Lang (as himself) and a super hot Birgitte Bardot in various degree of undressed. The story itself about marriage that falls apart during a movie production fascinate me and the film is elegantly made. Jack Palance also deliver one of his best appearances of his life. Surprising ending too. "
