Critics reviews

It is the most sensational treble in the whole history of the French cinema. His Bel Indifferent is Piero della Francesca plus Picasso (cf. Jeanne Allard’s decoratively tortured face) plus Bérénice. What a collection! people will say. What a confection! say I. Jacques Demy really has entered the cinema, as Raymond Queneau’s Pierrot has entered literature.
December 10, 1958
