Plot Summary

Using money earned from selling Operation Concrete (1958), Jean-Luc Godard's adaptation of Guy de Maupassant's short story named "Le Signe" (The Signal), was shot on 16mm in Geneva and was believed for decades to be irretrievably lost. While walking back home on a Friday morning, a married young woman notices another woman at her window, offering swift and light smiles at male passersby, and as soon as they locked eyes with her, she made a signal. Intrigued, the woman decides to indulge herself in an innocent but crazy idea, and without second thought, she heads to the nearest bench at Rousseau Park to do just that: throw a smile at the first man she saw. Is this modern coquette really guilty of flirting? Written by Nick Riganas
