MISSISSIPPI MERMAID
LA SIRÈNE DU MISSISSIPI
1969, The Film Desk, 123 min, France/Italy, Dir: François Truffaut

One of Francois Truffaut’s least-known films stars Jean-Paul Belmondo as a wealthy industrialist living on a remote island in the Indian Ocean who summons a mail-order bride and gets the lovely, double-crossing Catherine Deneuve. When she empties his bank account and disappears, Belmondo follows her back to Europe and straight into a whirlpool of murder and deceit. Based on the Cornell Woolrich novel Waltz Into Darkness, the film is dedicated to Truffaut’s idol, Jean Renoir. “This visually elegant yet frankly emotional romance is about why the best reply to ‘I love you’ might finally be ‘I believe you,’ as it is here." – Janet Maslin, The New York Times.
