RUE DE L’ESTRAPADE is the last in a series of Becker romances (including ANTOINE ET ANTOINETTE, RENDEZ-VOUS DE JUILLET, and EDOUARD ET CAROLINE) notable for their delicate mixture of comedy and melodrama and their feel for Parisian life. When a young wife (Anne Vernon) discovers that her racecar-driver husband (Louis Jourdan) has cheated on her, she moves into the Latin Quarter, where she meets a seductive musician (Daniel Gélin). Godard called it “splendid.” In French with English subtitles. 35mm print courtesy of the Institut Français; thanks to the Cultural Services of the French Embassy. (MR)
