Although made at a time of great deprivation, Jacques Becker’s seductively energetic look at the world of haute couture is regarded as one of the finest films about fashion. The charismatic Raymond Rouleau plays a top Parisian designer and seducer of women who falls crazily in love with the fiancée of his best friend, resulting in a plot which veers giddily from farce to tragedy. Intriguingly, Becker made the film during the German occupation of France, but it wasn’t released until after the Liberation. The screening marks the 100th birthday of Micheline Presle in August.
"Feels as right as a perfect necklace, so that it sets off the wider fabric of the story."
