A Single Girl

1995, France, 90m, DCP

After nearly two decades making movies, Jacquot scored an international breakthrough with his forthright, dramatic yet never melodramatic portrait of a young woman reporting for work as a hotel maid after learning that she is pregnant. Post-New Wave and pre-Internet, the film is both peripatetic and contemplative. Caroline Champetier’s camera keeps pace with fast-moving lead Virginie Ledoyen, whose magnetic performance earned her a third nomination for the César Award for Most Promising Actress.

A film by Benoît Jacquot

Benoît Jacquot’s small, dazzling film… is so buoyant, sharp-eyed and casually sexy it comes closer than any recent movie to capturing the essence of youth itself.”

Stephen Holden, The New York Times
