Une Histoire D'Amour served as the last starring film of Louis Jouvet, who died in 1951 at the age of 63. Jouvet is cast as Planche, a philosophical police inspector, investigating the suicides of two young lovers. Though he really doesn't have to, Planche delves into the past to find out what would motivate these two attractive people to destroy themselves. As he does so, their foredoomed love story is slowly revealed in a series of flashbacks. Dany Robin and Daniel Gelin are well cast as the star-crossed lovers, who play their scenes sincerely, with a minimum of movie-star histrionics.
