Directed by François Truffaut | 1964

With Jean Desailly, Françoise Dorléac, Nelly Benedetti, Daniel Ceccaldi, Laurence Badie

“One of Truffaut’s best”
—J. Hoberman, The Village Voice

Still unfairly overlooked, Truffaut’s follow-up to Jules and Jim had its premiere at Cannes, an event the director called a “complete fiasco.” This Hitchcockian domestic drama about a mild-mannered literary critic (Desailly) having an extramarital affair was heralded by J. Hoberman as “one of Truffaut’s best… He treats it like a crime film—low-key yet tense, filled with carefully planted potential 'clues' and an undercurrent of anxiety.”
