Divorced and childless in her 40s, Louise (Jeanne Moreau) becomes infatuated with 20-year-old Italian immigrant, Luigi (Julian Negulesco). The teacher and young worker live together in Annecy in secret, but their relationship quickly sours as they struggle with the age gap, the weight of Louise’s debts, and the disapproval of others. After successful films such as Cartridge, L’homme de Rio (That Man from Rio) and Le Roi de cœur (King of Hearts), this offering by Philippe de Broca marked a departure. 4K restoration presented in Cannes Classics.
"Intimate tale of female desire … and the weight of social conventions of the time. Sparkling performance from Moreau."
