Guy and Geneviève are very much in love. When they find out that Guy must leave for a two-year tour of combat in Algeria, they share a passionate night. Pregnant and devastated by Guy’s absence, Genevieve must choose whether to wait for Guy or marry a wealthy diamond merchant. A visually intoxicating masterpiece, Demy’s musical with Michel Legrand’s memorable soundtrack won the 1964 Palme d’Or in Cannes.

Preceded by a musical introduction by composer and member of the Academy of Motion Picture, Gary Yershon
