Regis Wargnier directs this French drama starring Catherine Deneuve.
Set in Vietnam during the 1930s, the story follows the lives of Eliane Devries (Deneuve), a French woman who owns a large rubber plantation, and Camille (Linh Dan Pham), the orphaned Vietnamese princess whom Eliane has adopted as her daughter.
Their problems begin with the arrival of Jean-Baptiste (Vincent Perez), a handsome young naval officer who, after a brief affair with Eliane, becomes the object of Camille's undying affection.
Eliane arranges to have Jean-Baptiste transferred, but still, even after marrying someone else, Camille cannot forget about her one true love.
The film won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film.
