Unfortunately only the American version is available, badly retitled "Vacation from Marriage" and with a full ten minutes of unknown material cut from the film.

It's nice escapism, movies from this era, including the actors' personal stories.
"Fleur bleue" again something that could be interpreted both positively and negatively? :D

Am I that ambiguous when writing?

Actually, yes, "être fleur bleue" holds two possible interpretations, but the negative one is very soft.
But when you think to Charles Trenet's song, "Feur bleue", it's a very good characterisation.

I've no idea what these "fleur bleue" references actually mean, but here's a blue flower.

I feared Flower of Scotland.

Cool, your machin.

And now for something completely different, but the real stuff:
Charles Trenet chante "Fleur bleue"
(Refrain)
Un doux parfum qu'on respire
C'est fleur bleue
Un regard qui vous attire
C'est fleur bleue
Des mots difficiles à dire
C'est fleur bleue
C'est fleur bleue
C'est fleur bleue
Un rendez-vous en automne
C'est fleur bleue
Une chanson qu'on fredonne
C'est fleur bleue
Un jeune amour qui se donne
Deux grands yeux qui s'abandonnent
C'est fleur bleue

On envoie des pneumatiques
A fleur bleue
Les dimanches sont poétiques
Tout fleur bleue
On se met du cosmétique
Dans les cheveux,
Oui parbleu,
Pour fleur bleue
On jure que l'on s'adore
Tous les deux
Et l'on jurerait encore
Si fleur bleue
Ne vous plaquait, ça c'est vache
Pour un dragon à moustaches
Ah! Morbleu!...

Elle n'est pas revenue
Mystérieux
Oui à jamais disparue
Sans adieu
Et je suis seul dans la rue
Larmes aux yeux,
Larmes aux yeux,
Larmes aux yeux.
Mais soudain le cœur bat vite
Ah, mon Dieu :
La voilà c'est la petite
L'air joyeux
Non ce n'est pas elle, quel drame
C'est une assez grosse dame
Pas fleur bleue.

Alors le printemps l'automne
Sans fleur bleue
Coulent des jours monotones
Ciel pluvieux
Et cet air que je fredonne
Sans fleur bleue, devient vieux, ennuyeux
Pourtant ne soyons pas triste
Pour fleur bleue
J'en ai là tout une liste
C'est bien mieux
Amourettes passagères
Joies, peines de cœur légères
Oui, fleurs bleues.

(Refrain)

Alexander Korda directed Robert Donat, Deborah Kerr, Glynis Johns, Ann Todd and Roland Culver. I finally saw it. And I found this film very very nice. But I'm tremendously “fleur bleue”. Besides, it is now time-tagged.

I've forgotten this movie to be honest but I do suspect it was fleur bleue... Robert Donat's Goodbye Mr Chips is less forgettable, but you probably saw that long ago.

Believe me or not (but you'll believe me), Goodbye Mr. Chips si still on my to-watch list. I'm in a sort of English cinema binge, right now, and I find unknown (to me) gems to enjoy. One of the most smashing thing I recently saw was I know where I'm going (Powell & Pressburger, with Wendy Hiller and Roger Livesey), astounding.

Cinéma de minuit had a cycle of films in 1996 « Aspects du cinéma britannique », one was Goodbye Mr Chips.
Before the internet it wasn't so easy to get hold of classic films. I had to physically go to the library in Bruges and rent the VHS. And bring it back. BBC-2 also showed old films in the late evening, all the Ingmar Bergman movies in chronological order... They wouldn't do that anymore.
English cinema of this era that makes an impression is A Night to Remember 1958, Browning Version 1951, Picture of Dorian Gray 1945... And indeed Powell & Pressburger, and David Lean, Great Expectations from 1946 in particular.
