Hearth Fires (French: Les Feux de la Chandeleur) is a 1972 French film directed by Serge Korber. The film is also known as La Divorziata (Italy).



Marie-Louise (Anne Giradot) is a woman whose love for her ex-husband will not die. The Lawyer Alexandre (Jean Rochefort) left her, because she attended a few leftist marches and demonstrations. While her daughter Laura (Claude Jade) falls in love with Marc (Bernard Fresson), Marie-Louise keeps hoping that Alexandre will come back to her. Laura helps her to fight for love and Marie-Louise is so attached to this idea that when her son (Bernard Le Coq) finally convinces her that he will never return, the realization has dire consequences.



This movie was nominated for Best Picture at the 1972 Cannes Film Festival.[1][2]
