Time Out says

Alex Joffé, who he? Truffaut thought well of him, calling his films 'messages of love and benevolence' and giving him a role in Shoot the Pianist. Joffé's handling of his child characters suggests some affinity, but Truffaut never manipulated his audience as crudely as the director of this film. It's the Occupation again, with upper class fugitive Morgan obliged to spend the war pretending to be the wife of boozy layabout Bourvil. He shapes up, she unbends, one thing leads to another. But then peace comes, her real husband returns, and poor old Bourvil sadly hits the road. The tone is so rosy, Joffé might as well have shot it in colour, with a few songs by Michel Legrand.
