Movie Info

Rue de L'Estrapade was filmmaker Jacques Becker's immediate follow-up to his 1952 classic Casque D'Or. That the film does not quite measure up to its predecessor shouldn't be held against it. Anne Vernon and Louis Jourdan play Francoise and Henri, a happily married Parisian couple. Despite his marital bliss, Henri decides to embark on a brief romantic fling. In answer to his infidelity, Francoise moves to the Bohemian artists' community, where she nearly succumbs to the charms of a scruffy existentialist (Daniel Gelin). This being a French film, a satisfactory ending is achieved without any harsh punishment being bestowed upon either husband or wife.


Critic Reviews for Rue de l'Estrapade

All Critics (1) | Top Critics (1)

This romantic comedy of decadence, frivolity, and cynicism seems imbued with the very high-gloss lacquer that it derides.
