The Lovers

1 post in this topic

I just saw this film today on DVD from the Criterion Collection.  this was the 2nd film that Louis Malle and  Jeanne

Moreau made together ( the 1st being Elevator to the Gallows). Back in 1958, The Lovers was apparently  quite a shocking film.It was regarded as diabolical and obscene.  One of the big surprises ( to  me anyhow) was an  actor name Jean-Marc Bory-who played one of Moreau's lovers.   I had seen him in one other film with Brigitte Bardot ( Love on a Pillow).  One  scene had the lovers drifting slowly down a stream in the moonlight.  Check it out!
