(1963) After Bank clerk Claude Mann’s holiday gets diverted to Nice’s “Baie des Anges” and a seat at the roulette table next to platinum blonde Jeanne Moreau, the couple rollercoaster from hotel suites, cars and couture to scrounging for change, and back again. Demy’s second film is a triumph of style, from Raoul Coutard’s mobile camerawork amid sun-splashed Riviera locations to Moreau, resplendent in white lacy bustier, flashing across a succession of mirrors in the penultimate shot. Approx. 90 min. DCP. Restored in 2012 with the support of the La Cinémathèque Française, the Franco-American Fund and the Audivisual Archives of Monaco.
“Fast-moving, supremely assured, hypnotic.”
– Richard Roud
