Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Le Desir et L'Amour is an interesting precursor to such "how movies are made" efforts like Day for Night and Sweet Liberty. A French film company heads to Spain for a location shoot. All sorts of mishaps befall the cast and crew, some of them self-inflicted, others beyond their control. The main plotline concerns a young local fisherman (Antonio Vilar) who is hired to double for the water-shy leading man. The youth promptly falls in love with the film's seductive leading lady, played with tongue-in-cheek self-consciousness by the delectable Martine Carol. Among the film's highlights is a flamenco number by Spanish musical star Carmen Sevilla.
