Part III of Becker’s “Youth Trilogy”
Starring Daniel Gélin
Directed by Jacques Becker

(1951) Is it a big break for bohemian pianist Daniel Gélin to play at wife Anne Vernon’s uncle’s mansion, or …? Arguments and intimacies between the upper and lower class couple (they turn the radio on and off differently) with a biting look at the just-rich-enough to be bored audience. DCP. Approx. 85 min.

Reviews

“The film has been compared to Renoir’s La Règle du jeu and has the same kind of charm and lightness of touch, ironically exploring the emptiness and hypocrisy of fashionable society without ever descending into caricature or denying the humanity of its characters.”
– Konstantin Bazarov

“Has the allure of an American screwball comedy but with increased class-consciousness.”
– David Mermelstein, The Wall Street Journal
