François Truffaut Revisited

L'Homme qui aimait les femmes

120 mins

in French with EN subs

FRA | 1977 | dir. François Truffaut, with Charles Denner, Brigitte Fossey, Nelly Borgeaud

An intriguing, sometimes unsettling study of an aeronautics engineer (Denner) who devotes his non-working hours to the pursuit of sexual encounters with women. The film never endorses his behaviour but offers a critical analysis – peppered with moments of absurdist comedy – of an obsessive with complex psychological shortcomings; accordingly, Denner’s cool detachment suggests neither contentment nor fulfilment but a haunted, compulsive defensiveness.
