According to a radio interview, actress Kika Markham [Ann], during filming, introduced director François Truffaut to her parents, who both worked in the English theater and cinema worlds and to whom she had remained quite close. Truffaut, whose own parents had neglected him, got along so famously with Markham's parents that he cast her father, David Markham, in the role of a palmist in the brief scene in which he reads the two sisters' fortunes. However, when he tells her, while reading her palm "Ah, but there's great danger here... you should take care of yourself," her father's performance so disturbed Markham that her look of distress in the film was real. She would come to interpret this scene as an omen of her later ill-starred marriage to actor Corin Redgrave. See more »

Dearest Claude... I came to see you to bury this thing. I'm glad you were the first, because it's you, because you wanted it. I shan't cry. Listen to me as you once did when I told you love was stirring in me. Now I tell you that is must die. So that I may live.

One of my many favorites, one of my favorite Truffauts, and Léauds, is this magnificent film taking place in England/Paris. Kika Markham in this film is one of the most beautiful women I've ever seen. Overall the film is one of the most beautiful I've ever seen. Should be seen in a theater. Very moving.
