Movie Info

This nostalgic romance follows restless young man Victor Chmara (Hippolyte Girardot) as he woos the gorgeous Yvonne Jacquet (Sandra Majani) while on vacation at a luxury hotel on Lake Geneva. The couple spends much of their time lounging about the shores of the lake with eccentric gay doctor Rene Meinthe (Jean-Pierre Marielle), who regularly dispenses witty observations about their posh fellow tourists. Unfortunately, their idyllic holiday can't last forever.

Audience Reviews for Le Parfum d'Yvonne (Yvonne's Perfume)

  • May 22, 2009
    A beautiful, sensuous film about a summer of love between two people who are not what they pretend to be. Yvonne (Sandra Majani) and Victor (Hippolyte Giradot) are two beautiful young people who meet and fall in love. He poses as a Russian Count and she is an aspiring actress. The cinematography is breath-taking, the scenery is magnificent, the actors beautiful, the love scenes tender and romantic. The story, however, is a bit muddled. Why he pretends to be someone else is never explained (except in the film's synopsis). Why she responds as she does when he proposes to make her dream come true, why the shocking turn of events at the end when Victor returns to Geneva and reunites with Rene (Jean-Pierre Marielle) are never properly explained. As one who is not a francophone, one must assume that some things were left untranslated, or else the connecting scenes were edited out. The way the scenes cut back and forth between the present and the reminiscences of that summer was also a bit disconcerting. Victor may be older, but not by much. In spite of these flaws, a superb film that kept this viewer enthralled. As a whole, a rewarding, if somewhat confusing, film. Four stars.
