Movie Info

A violin-playing British doctor's life changes forever after he takes in a distraught Austrian ballerina who tries to kill herself after breaking her wrist. He hires the sad girl as a nanny for his bright son, whom he wants to keep away from his neurotic, overbearing wife. The trouble starts when the doctor and the nanny become genuinely attracted to each other. The wife learns of the nanny's former career and suicide attempt and orders her fired. This causes the doctor to take action on behalf of his son. This in turn causes a downward spiral into tragedy involving an accidental death.

Audience Reviews for We Are Not Alone

Any film with Paul Muni is worth watching. Although this is not among his best, it is still good. Flora Robson is excellent as Muni's embittered wife. It's a touching story, well produced. The basic plot is Muni hires a patient of his to be a nanny for his son, in the hopes of being a good influence on his sensitive and very bright son and to offset his wife's overbearing manner.
