The late, great Jeanne Moreau was vaulted to cinematic stardom in Louis Malle's first feature, an elegant Hitchcockian thriller that was made when the director was just 24. The improvised score is by Miles Davis. "Maurice Ronet and Moreau star as an ex-paratrooper and his lover who plot to murder her industrialist husband. Things do not go exactly as planned…. Adroitly bringing in the wider issues of the Indochina war, industry, and runaway machinery, Malle creates a milieu for his frantic, frustrated lovers." - Pacific Film Archive
