Tribute to Jeanne Moreau

The Lovers

90 mins

in French with EN subs

FRA | 1958 | dir. Louis Malle, with Jeanne Moreau, Jean-Marc Bory, Alain Cuny

Jeanne Moreau plays a chic, high-society wife with money, a daughter, smart friends and a casual lover. Then one night, she makes passionate love with a young student she has only known for a few hours, and drops everything for a new life. A controversial study of bourgeois emptiness and sexual yearnings.

Followed by a discussion with Nick Walker (Rochester Kino Cinema Club)
