À nos amours (To Our Loves)
Dir. Maurice Pialat. 1983, 95 mins. 35mm. With Sandrine Bonnaire, Evelyne Ker, Dominique Besnehard, Maurice Pialat. Looking for a star for what would become his masterpiece of sexual rebellion, Pialat cast a working-class sixteen year-old living in the suburbs of Paris as his lead, and so began the remarkable career of Sandrine Bonnaire. The awakened womanhood of teenaged Suzanne (Bonnaire) is just more fuel to the fire in the volatile apartment/workshop that she shares with her family, including a gruff, irascible patriarch (Pialat). Co-written by Pialat’s frequent collaborator Arlette Langmann, who helped the director to access a female perspective, À nos amours belongs on any shortlist of the greatest French films of the 20th century.
