Five Day Lover

1961, France/Italy, 86m, DCP

American actress Jean Seberg continued to make her memorable mark in French cinema, starring in one of de Broca’s early features, lensed in black-and-white by frequent collaborator Jean Penzer. A bittersweet roundelay unfolds in Paris amidst the status-conscious haute couture world, as Seberg cuckolds husband François Périer with Jean-Pierre Cassel; unbeknownst to her however, he is the kept man of her best friend, top designer Micheline Presle.
