Rendez-vous de juillet
Dir Jacques Becker
With Daniel Gélin, Maurice Ronet, Brigitte Auber
"This is one of the finest films about the post-war Paris of St Germain-des-Prés, a microcosm where philosophy, theatre and jazz thrived. A young man tries to persuade his group to join him in making an ethnographic film in the Congo, but his idealism causes ruptures in love and friendship. Becker’s direction of his glittering cast is impeccable."
