AUSTRALIAN PREMIERE OF THE 4K RESTORATION

"A tour de force of sexual longing and controlled suspense." — Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

A sensual, sexy, psychological drama that takes a surprising turn into a police procedural. Lovers Jean-Paul (Alain Delon) and Marianne (Romy Schneider) are on an apparently happy holiday in a villa in the south of France when Marianne’s ex-lover Harry (Maurice Ronet) turns up hoping to rekindle his old romance. Jean-Paul starts taking more than a passing interest in Harry’s teenage daughter (Jane Birkin). Stunning 4K restoration with cinematography from Jean-Jacques Tarbès and music by Michel Legrand.

The boiling point for simmering jealousy, male-female possessiveness and the hint of violence…” — Michael Calleri

Witnessing toxic masculinity taken to its logical extreme has never been this satisfying.” — Ruben Rosario

The 6pm session on Friday 28 April will be introduced by John Duigan, a writer/director and obscure novelist.
