Filmed on location in North Africa, La Soif des Hommes is the story of a farmer and his two lovely daughters. Returning from the battlefields of WW II, a soldier stops over at the farm, whereupon both girls instantly fall in love with him. The soldier is fondest of the younger girl, but, bowing to tradition, he marries the older one. The film's romantic triangle shares screen time with the farmer's ongoing struggle to keep his household together, despite deprivations both natural and man-made. The acting is excellent, with standout performances rendered by Georges Marchal as the soldier and Dany Robin as the younger sibling. La Soif des Hommes was released in the U.S. as Man's Hunger and The Thirst of Men.
