A bored young man meets with his former girlfriend, now a cabaret dancer and single mother, and soon finds himself falling back in love with her.
In Jacques Demy’s first feature film, the spellbinding Anouk Aimée plays Lola, wistful yet sparkling, framed by the beautiful and melancholic imagery of Raoul Coutard and dancing to the music of Michel Legrand. It conveys the spirit of the early French New Wave and the graceful cinema of Max Ophüls.
