Directed by Jean Eustache | 1973

With Bernadette Lafont, Jean-Pierre Léaud, Françoise Lebrun, Isabelle Weingarten, Jacques Renard

“It’s impact cannot easily be missed or forgotten by anyone.”
—Time Magazine

Sex, sex, sex—that’s all anyone has on their mind in Eustache’s amazing, seemingly-improvised-but-not debut. Stars Léaud, Lafont, and Lebrun comprise a supposedly sexually enlightened ménage a trois, negotiating the perils, pitfalls, and endless confusion of modern romance. Initially met with suspicion for its frank handling of the subject at hand, The Mother and the Whore has since been recognized as the first great post-New Wave, post-May ’68 French masterwork.
