Exemplary in terms of economy of storytelling, Bernard's 'Maya' is a film the merits of which derive both from the theme of seamen's deification of harbor prostitutes and of the latter's plight but also from the pristine cinematography so typical of Bernard's oeuvre. The red light district and its alleys is gorgeously lit as well as the hope and disappointment in women's and men's faces. The film belongs to Romance.
