FRA | 1969 | dir. Nelly Kaplan, with Bernadette Lafont, Georges Géret, Henri Czarniak

To get revenge for the humiliations she and her mother endured in the past, Marie (Bernadette Lafont) begins to charge for her sexual favours and completely disrupts the smug patriarchal capitalist society of the Tellier village. Now considered one of the best films of the French New Wave, called by Picasso: “insolence raised to the status of art” who said he found in it “the same atmosphere as in the best films of Luis Buñuel”, Nelly Kaplan’s La Fiancée du pirate will be presented in a 2K restoration
