Arch of Triumph: A Novel of a Man Without a Country by Erich Maria RemarqueIt is 1939. Despite a law banning him from performing surgery, Ravic--a German doctor and refugee living in Paris--has been treating some of the citys most elite citizens for two years on the behalf of two less-than-skillful French physicians.
Forbidden to return to his own country, and dodging the everyday dangers of jail and deportation, Ravic manages to hang on--all the while searching for the Nazi who tortured him back in Germany. And though hes given up on the possibility of love, life has a curious way of taking a turn for the romantic, even during the worst of times.
Arch of Triumph (5) Ingrid Bergman and Charles Boyer
The Erich Maria Remarque novel, by very suggestion of authorship and the Lewis Milestone association, conjures up analogy to the now classic All Quiet, the post-First World War film, also from a Remarque work. The analogy ends there because the character of both differs strikingly.

Arch of Triumph
It was directed by Lewis Milestone and is based on the novel Arch of Triumph by Erich Maria Remarque , which he wrote during his nine-year exile in the United States. One of them is Dr. Ravic Charles Boyer , who under a false name practices medicine illegally, helping other refugees. He saves Joan Madou Ingrid Bergman from committing suicide after the sudden death of her lover. They become involved, but he is deported and she becomes the mistress of a wealthy man, Alex Stephen Bekassy. All this time Ravic seeks revenge against the Nazi officer Haake Charles Laughton , with war eventually declared between France and Germany. The film's name is a reference to the Arc de Triomphe in Paris , where the film is set.
