Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Un Sourire dans la Tempete was filmed in the snowy wastes of Alaska. The "dramatis personae" consists of three men (J. P. Kerien, Richard Ney and Roger Pigaut) and one woman (Michelle Martin). Rivalry over the woman's affections leads to a potentially explosive situation. The tension does not dissipate when the woman's husband joins her admirers in a search for buried gold. What follows is a quick-frozen variation of themes previously explored in films like Greed and The Treasure of the Sierra Madre. Reportedly, the actors themselves ponied up the budget money for Un Sourire dans la Tempete.
