In a performance that won her a best-actress prize at Cannes, Jeanne Moreau stars as a wife and mother living in a steel town near Bordeaux who witnesses a murder and later gets to know another person (Jean-Paul Belmondo) who saw the same crime. This seldom-screened 1960 feature was directed by Peter Brook from a script he wrote with Marguerite Duras, adapting her novel; it was Duras' first screenplay after Hiroshima, mon amour and Brook's first feature after The Beggar's Opera, made seven years earlier.
