    Very glad I stumbled on this restored copy of this , worlds better than the one I’d looked at before … I’d thought I’d never surmise a Claude Miller film again after recently watching La Classe de Neige & feeling totally infuriated and bewildered by the end … This one has those qualities as well, to be sure, but alternates kitsch with sublimity in endlessly fascinating succession … Definitely well worth experiencing for filmophiles!
