SpacePirate's rating of the film La Pointe Courte

Varda and Resnais working on the same film? How could it fail? A proto-new wave film about poor lower class fisherman life but mixed with some martial drama as well. Interesting plot and a unique film overall, from camera shots, pacing, etc. A standard bearer and must see for fans of Chabrol, Godard, Truffaut, Resnais. 4.5 stars
