Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Le Coeur Ebloui (Troubled Heart) is set in France during WWI. Too young to enlist, student José Noguero remains behind in school. With no real competition, Noguero has no qualms about falling in love with much-older headmistress Huguette Duflos. From this point onward, the plot becomes confusing and cluttered; suffice to say that the course of true love has several potholes and speed bumps, especially when math professor Max Dearly also falls for Duflos. The running time of Le Coeur Ebloui is padded with reams of wartime newsreel footage.
