Script deficiencies and awkward reading -- some lines are spoken as though just that -- have static results.

Jean Seberg is as captivating as ever in Otto Preminger's newly restored 1958 drama.

It's almost like a game, the kind that seems funny until someone gets hurt.

The final shot is one of the most convincingly grief-stricken in cinema.

Otto Preminger's formally dazzling 1958 film is an edifice constructed of contrasts.

Contrasting the picture-perfect backdrop, Saul Bass' title sequence and Juliette Gréco's rendition of the title song add to the melancholy.

Niven and Kerr keenly satirize their onscreen iconographies-the cad and the goody-goody, respectively-but it's Seberg who cuts deepest.

While some may be put off by Preminger's glossy presentation of the idle rich, his direction in Bonjour Tristesse engages the mind while it stimulates the senses.

Emanuel Levy

Misunderstood at the time and still underappreciated, this 1958 glossy melodrama improves on Sagan's French novella, displaying Preminger's best qualities as auteur, moral ambiguity, detached, nonjudgmental approach, not to mention smooth visuals.

Underneath the endless round of parties and nightclubs, there is a desperate, secret sadness, and Seberg's stare at the camera is haunting.

August 29, 2013


he overall ambiguity of the film and its refusal to make judgements mark it as ahead of its time, while the cast are first-rate, particularly Seberg, veering between impishly mischievous and spookily sinister.

The flirtation with incest at the centre of this adaptation of Françoise Sagan's novel is tame by modern standards, but the evil scheming of Seberg as the daughter set on separating her father and his mistress is still forceful.
