'Petit Tailleur' (= French for 'small tailor') borrows a lot from the 'Nouvelle vague' film-trend, dating from the early 19-Sixties.
Back then, 'Nouvelle vague' (= French for 'new wave') significantly changed the way of filming. By using a pessimistic tone, suggesting that mankind is unable to change its destiny. By emphasizing on moods and impressions instead of on a solid storyline. By an extended use of close-ups. By a black-and-white shooting, contradicting the glorious colors from the previous decade.
All these elements return to 'Petit Tailleur', making it to an enjoyable gem of 45-minutes length. The only com temporary element I could discover was the behavior of female lead Lea Seydoux: she behaves much more independently than her sisters from the 19-Sixties.
