- 91 min
- Directed by: Jacques Demy
- Cast: Anouk Aimee, Marc Michel, Jacques Harden.
Demy's marvellous first feature. Aimee stars as a cabaret singer and single mother awaiting the return of her long-absent lover and attracting a horde of suitors in the meantime. This tale of wistful melancholy is turned to a thing of joy by the sheer lyricism and brio of the filmmaking. Demy's circling camera is a tribute to the great Max Ophuls in particular and evidence of the French New Wave's love of cinema in general.
