"The Lovers" (1958)

The Lovers (1958)
Saw “The Lovers” at the NW Film Center last night, the film that put Louis Malle on the map in 1958. At this point it comes across as far from shocking, with a plot that seems pretty unlikely. Yet there are some very nice moments in the film. Jeanne Moreau is a bored provincial wife who is looking for something; and she finds it in an unexpected guest. A night of passion is just the beginning!Funny enough, perhaps the most ‘shocking’ sight in the film today is to see Moreau’s unshaven armpit!
