Storyline

After the events of May 1968, the French went on vacations - and they were filmed during three months on the rural fairs, on the beaches, on promotional campaigns for products and politicians. And they spoke to the director's candid camera on a variety of subjects - from man walking on the moon to eroticism, from advertisement to marriage... Written by Artemis-9

Trivia

One of the items discussed in the interviews is the power of advertising, and twice we see a banner for the GAN company, and once there is a full radio ad broadcast at an outdoor event for "GAN, G - A - N, Groupe d'assurances nationales". Forty-two years later, GAN Foundation was one of the mecenas saving the film with a costly restoration. See more »

Etaix's final film, a documentary, is inessential but not bad
23 March 2014 | by (Saint Paul, MN) – See all my reviews

Etaix's fifth and last feature is a documentary. In the summer of 1968, Etaix took his camera across France to interview a variety of people. With thousands of hours of footage, he creates a document of the times, juxtaposing the images he caught with the interviews he recorded. More often than not, the interviews have nothing specifically to do with the images, but instead serve as humorous content on them. This is more than a bit unfocused and it probably would have worked better as a short. It's only 76 minutes long, but it feels a lot longer. Still, there's a lot of value here, and the images themselves are excellent. It's definitely Etaix's least substantial and interesting picture (the most notable element is the little comic sketch Etaix does right at the beginning), but it's worth a look.
