Bay of Angels Regizat de Jacques Demy
Demy’s second feature avoids the pitfalls of flashier gambling pictures, opting for somber realism and an astute comparison between love and gambling… Jeanne Moreau delivers one of her finest performances as Jackie, the seductive Parisian who would sell her soul for another spin at the roulette table.

The gambling scenes are montages cut to a quick tempo, using mostly dissolves, and pass by in a dreamlike blur… In every other scene, the takes are long and fluid, without many cuts—they have a wandering, leisurely rhythm. The alternation of styles gives the movie a tension that has nothing to do with conventional suspense. In Bay of Angels, as in no other movie about gambling, whether the players win or lose feels fundamentally irrelevant. The experience is all that matters.

BAY OF ANGELS is one of the most underrated and uncharacteristic films of Jacques Demy’s oeuvre. It might look like his first feature, LOLA (1961), but the black-and-white ‘Scope of that “musical without music” is replaced in BAY OF ANGELS with a grittier cinematography that reflects the unusual straightforwardness of Demy’s rather cynical narrative.
