Adieu Philippine

Jacques Rozier is perhaps the least known of the most talented French New Wave directors, if only because his output is so limited—about one feature per decade. His subject is teenagers, and his method owes a lot to cinema verite. This first feature, made toward the beginning of the 1960s, is also probably his best; it concerns a young TV worker who is dating two 18-year-old girlfriends and can't choose between them. Rozier's graceful style is a mixture of sweetness and light, devoid of pretension and open to youthful energies. Recommended.
