Presented by La Collectionneuse and the French Film and TV Office

Abandoning the gritty Parisian streets of Elevator to the Gallows, Moreau and Malle followed up that burst of jazz-crime for a seductive, novelistic meditation on bourgeois malaise a la campagne. Moreau’s Jeanne Tournier is a bored housewife living luxuriously in a Dijon mansion – her wandering eyes and affections drifting from her newspaper-tycoon husband to the polo-playing urbanite Raoul. The arrival of a third wheel, Bernard, results in two of Malle’s dreamiest, delectably Hitchcockian sequences – all photographed in lush black and white by New Wave legend Henri Decaë (The Red Circle, The Samourai, 400 Blows, etc). Although Moreau had already made nearly 20 films, her enrapturing performance in The Lovers springboarded her career into international stardom.

Dir. Louis Malle, 1958, 35mm, 89 min.
