An Entertaining Portrait of Small-Town Verisimilitude
11 November 2000 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

Made with leftover film given to him by Jean-Luc Godard, Jean Eustache interwove the stock from the former director's 'Masculin/Feminin' with his own 52-minute study of a group of young men in a small French province and their attempts to earn money and meet girls. Jean-Pierre Leaud (who starred in both films) is Daniel, the protagonist/narrator. As in the Doinel films by Truffaut, Leaud acts as a sort of alter ego figure for Eustache. Desperate to buy a stylish winter coat, Daniel accepts a local photographer's offer to dress up as a sidewalk Santa Claus to pose for photos with passerby. Once his identity is concealed in costume, Daniel discovers, the town's inhabitants treat him far differently; namely, attention from the girls who'd earlier brushed him off. An amusing document of a few days in the life of small-town French youth.
