Based on the novel by Henri-Pierre Roche, this film is about two men, two artists, one of whom is Austrian, the other French, and their love for the same woman over a period of twenty years. This pure love triangle is interrupted by the Great War, but becomes even stronger after it, only to fade with Jim and Catherine’s deaths in the early 30s.
