I must agree with this previous reviewer. As a Freshman student at NYU Washington Square I spent more time in the local "art" cinemas than I did in the classroom. This film did more than anything else to direct me on my future path and I'm not sure why. I'd really like to see this film again. To make a long story short, I dropped out of NYU, went to France as a GI, and returned to NYU to earn a PhD in French literature. It was a toss-up between film-making and the academic track for me in those days. My 17 year old French bride incarnated the French cinema scene for me and I follow it ever since. Somehow this film captures an essential spark of life.
