The Sweetness of Loving is the English-language title of this French musical comedy (based on a novel by A. Dieudonne). Victor Boucher delivers an on-target performance as Albert Dumontier, a ceramics engineer who dabbles in songwriting. Dumontier's cousin Rene (Henri Bose) takes it upon himself to publish several of Albert's songs under a fictional name. By the time Albert finds out about this, he's become enmeshed in the intrigues hatched by Rene's wife Germaine (Rene Devillers), who is attempting to prove that her husband is unfaithful. Adding curry to the stew is the fact that Germaine and Albert had once been sweethearts -- and they still haven't got over one another.
