Mona Lisa: The Story of an Obsession

La Joconde: Histoire d'une obsession

Directed by Henri Gruel
France, 1958
Short, Comedy


This is the story of an obsession. Mona Lisa keeps smiling quizzically while our poor hero is pursued by her representation in all its forms, in all places. She smiles at him in a museum, at a bookseller along the banks of the Seine, in the streets, at a café. Enough to drive him up the wall!
