Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The English-language title of this French romantic drama is Maria of End of World. The title character, played by Denise Cardy, is the wife of self-styled naturalist Mathius (Paul Meurisse). Alas, Maria's husband spends more time with his beloved woodland creatures than with her. Yearning for a visit to the Big City, Maria leaves herself wide open for disillusionment and heartbreak. Maria du Bout du Monde was regarded as a potboiler when originally released in France; it was hardly regarded at all when released in the U.S.
