"Le Peau Douce," directed by François Truffaut

Movie, 1964

A slight, well-trodden story of infidelity and the consequences arising for the three protagonists involved. A fairly conventional film, all told, although there’s a subversion at the end which makes quite a mark and a clear statement. Otherwise, everything in the film looks cool, with a decent smattering of Citroens, Gauloises and jet planes and some pretty archaic looking, talented people gaining social points over younger looking talented people. A film where gender and class are examined, while the story’s focus remains deeply personal.
