La Derniere Berceuse is the French-language version of the Italian drama Song of Love. Based on Silence, a novel by Luigi Pirandello, this is the story of a woman who saves her mother from disgrace by raising her deceased mother's illegitimate baby as her own. So devoted is the heroine to her responsibility that she tells her fiance she no longer has time for him. Ultimately, both the fiance and the child's father re-enter her life, offering to marry her, but she turns them both down. A German-language version, Liebesleid, was filmed simultaneously with the French and Italian adaptations.
