The Bakery Girl of Monceau

1963 NR

This first film in French new wave director Eric Rohmer's Six Moral Tales cycle explores the fickle nature of youthful desire. Stuffing himself full of pastries and flirting with the salesgirl, a law student (Barbet Schroeder) surrenders to his appetites. But for all his self-indulgence, he's in fact sublimating his true desire for an unattainable young woman he's seen only from a distance. Claudine Soubrier co-stars.
