| It's Certainly A Dark Movie!
Jean-Claude Pascal is a newly appoinedted army office in olden days. He is bivouaced with ome dull bourgeoisie, but they have a beautiful daughter, 20-year-old Anouk Aimee, who begins an affair with him.

This was a very well received short feature when it came out; it received a bunch of awards on the festival circuit including the Prix Louis Delluc. My issues are that it was a very dark print, so dark that Mlle Aimee's youthful beauty was lost in the shadows, and there was no dialogue. That's not a deal-breaker for a silent movie fan like me. However, the events of the story were narrated by Yves Furet, reminiscing about the events on the screen, which I could not see.

It's certainly possible that a better print would produce a better impression. Yet as it stands, it seems to be a dark story aboudark events in a a world so dark that nothing can be seen.
