Jean and Anna are young and in love. They spend Bastille Day together trying to dance the night away, trying to get in a kiss or two. Things keep getting in the way though, funny things like the rain, the whim of the band that's playing, and the stuffy old woman walking around. Unfortunately, when Jean returns home, his ex-girlfriend is waiting for him on his bed. Misunderstandings ensue, and it's not worth ruining by revealing all the wonderful things that happen through the rest of this film. I love À nous la liberté and Le million a lot, but neither of them reach the emotional peaks of Quatorze Juillet. It's still just as humorous as the other two, perhaps more so, but neither of them moved me like this one. It's not a musical, but it is imbued with very beautiful music. It's a magical film, one of the best ever made. Annabella, who also starred in Le million, is back as Anna in this one. 10/10.
