Interesting but only just.
on 9 February 2016
I purchased this DVD using a top 50 films list from the BFI (British film institute).
Previously I had never heard of it.
I didn't fall in love with it, but I didn't hate it either.
It seems to be one of those films that critics and film students have come to admire.
I read about the film portraying a vision of French society just prior to World War 2.
Personally, and it is only my opinion I will not be watching it again.
My guess is the film has become part of the required watching for those undertaking courses in cinematography and social history.
