Six short films by New Wave masters
3 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Here's a chance to see a set of simply produced, very accessible little films by masters of the New Wave era.

Each story is mildly outlandish, but the storytelling is superb, and the human responses that are the focus of each story hold your attention and manage to build empathy despite the shortness of each segment.

Even though each story centers around a conflict of some sort, there's a genuine sweetness to the way situations are handled. And seeing the stories unfold against the backdrop of 1960's Paris adds an extra visual element to make these films viewer-friendly and, modest as these films are, memorable.
