Six in Paris
(Barbet Schroeder, 1965). This modern city symphony (with New Wave six filmmakers portraying a different neighborhood) was shot in 16mm, the better to mix and match nouvelle vague with cinema verité. Jean-Luc Godard collaborated with Albert Maysles in dramatizing a Montparnesse-set anecdote from A Woman is a Woman; Jean Rouch contributed a domestic drama while, competing with Godard for nastiness; Claude Chabrol played out a marital psychodrama with then wife Stephanie Audrane. The most interesting entry belongs to Eric Rohmer who knocks off a Hitchcockian comedy in which a timid sales clerk with an overdeveloped sense of habit, imagines hes inadvertently killed the bothersome drunk he fended off with his umbrella.
