Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Altitude 3200 refers to the above-sea-level elevation of the French mountain retreat where most of this film takes place. Jean-Louis Barrault plays an idealistic sandwich-board man who joins his equally high-minded friends on a weekend excursion. Their hopes for rest and relaxation are dashed when a group of young girls take refuge in their lodgings during a storm. Devoted to the concept of a perfect, utopian society, in which men and woman are equals, the girls talk the boys into forming such a society-at least for the duration of the weekend. But by the time Monday rolls around, everyone has come to the conclusion that they'll be better off returning to the "imperfect" real world.
