THE TRUTH
LA VERITÉ
1960, Sony Repertory, 130 min, France/Italy, Dir: Henri-Georges Clouzot

Brigitte Bardot tops her amazing work with Godard and Vadim in this scorching portrait of amour fou. She stars as Dominique, a hedonistic free spirit on trial for the murder of her lover, musician Sami Frey. Clouzot breaks ground in his fearless look at private insecurities, revealing what supposedly constitutes a “sordid” lifestyle, and why it is so threatening to bourgeois society. Co-written by Clouzot and his wife, Véra (star of DIABOLIQUE). Winner of the 1961 Golden Globe for Best Foreign Film. In French with English subtitles.
