Best of Jean Seberg's films
16 January 2004 | by (Edgewater Park, New Jersey) – See all my reviews

Described as a comedy this film is really a "comedie" in the French meaning. It is drama with a smile on its face. The final scene is moving and hauntingly etched in memory forever. Never was Jean Seberg so lovely in spite of portraying a woman approaching middle age. One of the greats!
