Movie Info

This arty New Wave film marked the directorial debut of Jacques Rozier, and almost finished him commercially. A vacationing television technician (Jean-Claude Aimini) falls in love with two teenage girls (Yveline Cery and Stefania Sabatini) in the months preceding his induction into the military. The girls plot revenge when they discover his two-timing, but one of them has already fallen in love with him. Rozier did not make another film for over a decade following this one's crashing failure. ~ Robert Firsching, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Adieu Philippine

Although mostly forgotten now, it fully embodies the nouvelle vague and all its characteristics. Rejection of old studio methods, location shooting, youth-oriented, pop culture, modern music, minimal plotting with more focus on episodic "moments", improvisation, experimental techniques (especially jump cuts). It's a perfect example of French New Wave. It seems to run out of gas at times, wallowing in certain dead spots for a little too long, but it's mostly a lot of fun and very charming.
