Death and the maiden
7 May 2003 | by See all my reviews

Robert Enrico's follow-up to his fine "les aventuriers" casts the same actress,Johanna Shimkus , as the heroine.Is it because her funeral was in the precedent movie,one of the most beautiful scenes of the French cinema of the sixties?I must insist:"les aventuriers" is a must,particularly for these who are fed up with the nouvelle vague .I agree with the users who comment it on IMDb.

Because "Tante Zita" main theme is death:a twenty-year old girl,Annie (Shimkus)lives with her mother and her aunt (both played by first-class actresses Suzanne Flon and Katina Paxinou).The auntie is dying,and for the first time in her life ,Annie has to cope with death.One night,she finds it too hard to bear,and leaving home where the old woman is suffering,she begins to hang around in Paris.She will meet people ,and,from dusk to dawn,she will learn to leave her childhood behind and to grow into a woman.This is a simple but endearing story,and the beautiful Johanna Shimkus is simply touching.
