Not the most accomplished Claude Chabrol film, but as an early effort it's pretty good. Chabrol's first film in colour, plus his first look at the bourgeoisie and first venture into the psychological thriller genre which he would later become known for. Adding to this list of firsts is Jean-Paul Belmondo's major screen debut.
Probably more of interest to Chabrol fans rather than your average viewer.
The Russians certainly know how to make beautiful films! Very reminiscent of Tarkovsky. Stunning visuals with beautiful muted blue cinematography. The two young leads are fantastic. I was sad to learn that Vladimir Garin, who played Andrey, passed away on the day the film premiered in Russia. One of the best films of the decade and a must see.
A simple tale of young love. Not a masterpiece like Bergman's later works but still a brilliant piece of cinema.
