Maurice Ronet moves through a photogenic 60s Paris and its beautiful artists and philosophers in search of a reason to live. Effective use of the music of Erik Satie by Louis Malle, in a sort of suicide note to the enervated post war intellectual scene. A stylish, but inevitably downbeat experience. My pick as the director's best film.
