    Essays By Francois Truffaut and David Thomson

    New and Improved English Subtitle Translation
Although a commercial failure at first, this sole collaboration between two cinematic giants -- Robert Bresson, who directed, and Jean Cocteau, who adapted the screenplay from a Diderot story -- is now considered a high point in both careers. Like Bresson's other heroes with a mission, society woman Helene is out for revenge on the ex-lover who dumped her. She encourages his marriage to a dancer with a hidden past, then waits for the right moment to expose her. Maria Casares of "Orphee" (1950) is Helene in this romantic morality tale. Includes essays by Francois Truffaut and David Thomson, more.
