Isabelle (Cathia Caro) is afraid of men: this much the audience knows from the film's title. The reason? Because Isabelle's mother likes men -- lots and lots of men. Our heroine is unable to appreciate her mother's insatiable sexual appetite...until she falls in love herself. Then, to paraphrase an American colloquialism, it's "Isabelle, bar the door!" Isabelle a Pour des Hommes is essentially a teenage-angst film, and as such was one of several glutting the market in 1957. This is why the film didn't get much play in America, where films of this nature were as commonplace as German measles.
