Description
 
This is a region-free DVD-R without case or artwork.

In French with English subtitles.

A young second lieutenant in the hussars, garrisoned in the provinces, recalls a strange adventure. While staying with an old couple he meets Albertine, his hosts’ daughter, falls in love with her and, after wooing her assiduously, makes her his mistress. But then one night she dies in his arms…

"The combined talents of Anouk Aimée and Astruc have lent the mysterious Albertine a nobler passion, a wilder abandon, a haughtier aloofness, and a more painful ardor than in Barbey’s short story. From this story Astruc has crafted an extremely beautiful piece of cinema: the subject has been ennobled, the style refined to the limit" (Jean-José Richer, Cahiers du Cinéma, 1953).

The work of a master stylist. July 5, 2014
Reviewer: Justin McCann from Staten Island, NY United States  
Astruc was one of the French cinema's major theoreticians, genuinely obsessed with the critical importance of "camera-stylo" - wherein the camera would have all of the precision and expressive freedom of the writer's pen. This 44-minute gem is a stunning reflection of that spirit.

Rare, eccentric film from out of the shadows October 7, 2013
Reviewer: Chris Walters from Austin, TX United States  
No complaints, another title unobtainable from other sources. Delivery was prompt and item arrived in perfect condition. One mild suggestion - you may want to find a sharper font for subtitles. Otherwise keep up the great work.
