FUTURE OF EMILY, THE

Three generations. In 1945, Paula (Hildegard Knef) wanted to be an actress in Berlin. But she married instead and moved to France with her husband (Ivan Desny). Their daughter Isabelle (Brigitte Fossey) lives the life Paula always wanted for herself - successful, independent, an actress. But Isabelle envies Paula's lifestyle. She too has a daughter who often stays with her parents when she is off on location. The problems of single motherhood and the conflicts between personal freedom and family ties are at the center of this excellent drama which many consider to be Sanders-Brahms most refined and elegant film.
