"La Vie de Chateau"
Directed by Jean-Paul Rappeneau
Catherine Deneuve and Philippe Noiret star in the fine
directorial debut of Jean-Paul Rappeneau (The Horseman on the Roof).
The leads play a quietly dissatisfied couple whose placid life becomes
chaotic when German soldiers occupy their chateau and a Free French agent
claims to be in love with Deneuve. Claude Sautet (Nelly and Monsieur
Arnaud) contributed to the screenplay. "Rappeneau manages a dose of
charm and a sense of the comic which he would seldom repeat" (Faber
Companion to Foreign Films). French with English subtitles. 90
