Trivia

When Jacques Becker won the Palme d'Or in Cannes, he was not very famous. At the beginning of the festival, a lot of photographers took pictures of André Lafargue, a critic, thinking he was Becker. When Becker won the award, many newspapers used those mistaken pictures. See more »

User Reviews

A minor Proletarian classic.
29 March 2003 | by FilmCriticLalitRaoSee all my reviews

Jacques Becker was a successful chronicler of the post World War II generation who made remarkable films which dealt ironically with the problems of its protagonists.His creation,Antoine et Antoinette has remained a minor Proletarian classic.It has rightly been hailed by some critics as a light romantic comedy.The film boasts of a typically French psychological analysis.Becker has cast a fascinating look at the working class life by attempting social description in nuances.Antoine et Antoinette succeeded by incorporating all the essential themes with which a typical working class family could easily indentify itself.
