Highly suggestive of Albert Camus' "The Plague" and adapted from Jean-Paul Sartre’s novel "L'Amour rédempteur" , "Les Orgueilleux" was nominated for an Oscar and stars Gérard Philipe in another remarkable performance. Stranded during a heat wave in a decaying Mexican coastal town, an aristocratic French woman falls for a drunken French doctor with a dark secret.
