Chris_Parker's rating of the film Nouvelle vague

The image track tells one story (involving characters who gradually swap dominant & submissive relationship roles) & the soundtrack another (dialogue consists almost entirely of literary quotations) yet both frequently intersect to create a rich tapestry of sight & sound that functions as an affirmation of the possibility of love in the modern world & that also serves as a curiously optimistic farewell to socialism.
