An atypical film for director Peter Brook, who has never been known for his concern for the emotional crises of the bourgeois, this adaptation of Marguerite Duras's novel might qualify him as an honorary member of the Nouvelle Vague. The film stars Jeanne Moreau as Anne Desbaredes, a wealthy, bored housewife who believes she has witnessed a murder in a quayside bistro. Rushing to the scene of the crime, she strikes up a conversation with Chauvin (Jean-Paul Belmondo), an employee of her husband who also saw the crime. The troubled woman continues to return to the café, increasingly identifying herself with the murder victim and becoming obsessed with Chauvin..
