Venerable French character actress Francoise Rosay heads the cast of On Aime Qu'une Fois. Rosay is cast as the self-sacrificing mother to end them all. Determined that her son (Jacques Berthier) will be able to attend medical school, she denies herself everything -- including her one and only opportunity for true romance. What could have been maudlin in the extreme is handled with subtlety and delicacy by the matchless Francoise Rosay. Providing some welcome avuncular comedy relief is Pierre Larquey as a small-town general practitioner.
