The film that was at the heart of the 1964 obscenity case that led to the famous phrase ‘I know it when I see it’ regarding pornography, Louis Malle’s masterpiece would be considered beyond tame by today’s standards. Yet none of this detracts from the elegantly shot and tensely constructed story of a bored provincial housewife who falls for a dashing young archeologist during a moody Parisian escapade. With Jeanne Moreau in the leading role, taking over every space she enters with her iconic grace and unforgettable temperament.
