Ce soir ou jamais

Michel Deville France, 1961

Daniel S.'s rating of the film Tonight or Never

First movie co-written and directed by Michel Deville, 'Ce Soir ou Jamais' also marks Anna Karina's debut in cinema. Her next film will be Jean-Luc Godard's 'Une Femme est une Femme'. As though Michel Deville was never considered as a New Wave director, this film is very modern because it takes place in one single location. The light dialogues and the quick glances hide the characters's inner feelings. Recommended.
