Directed by Andrzej Żuławski
US release date: July 14, 2017

Five years before Possession, Polish emigré Żuławski crafted this equally intense and dazzling study of "amour fou". Romy Schneider (she won the inaugural Best Actress César Award for this role) stars as an aging Parisian actress slumming in seedy B films who falls in with photographer Fabio Testi and phases out cinéphile beau Jacques Dutronc in the process. Featuring Klaus Kinski as a cracked actor and music by Georges Delerue (echoing his score for Contempt), Żuławski’s lost masterpiece, a cult favorite on the Z Channel, finally comes to U.S. theaters in its original French-language version.

Arguably [Żuławski’s] greatest film. It is certainly his most deeply affecting. - Sight & Sound
