Maurice Pialat
FRA 1979
105 min

Pialat’s powerful portrait of sexual obsession is a love story without a future, though here the perspective is more closely aligned with that of the female protagonist. Nelly jilts her lover André, her match in intellect and social standing, and takes up with a leather-clad blue-collar ruffian, Loulou (Depardieu, beginning a fruitful collaboration with Pialat), with whom she shares an undeniable sexual chemistry and practically nothing else. “Pialat remains one of a handful of filmmakers genuinely interested in and capable of getting inside a woman’s head and projecting her desires onscreen.” (Molly Haskell)
