The Lovers

Dir. Louis Malle (1958) Malle's first international success is largely concerned with the sexual liberation of the bored and neglected wife of a rich publisher, played to the hilt by the young Jeanne Moreau. For the period, the picture was relatively explicit sexually and was banned in a few American towns and had footage excised in others. It contains a good deal of biting satire on the mores of the crumbling French bourgeoisie.
