Bay of Angels
No upcoming showtimes scheduled.
Director: Jaques Demy, Jaques Demy
1963 / 90min / DCP
Somber and seductive, Demy’s downbeat romantic drama largely takes place in the casinos of the Côte d’Azur, where platinum blonde compulsive gambler Jeanne Moreau risks her roll nightly at the roulette wheels, and hopelessly smitten bank clerk Claude Mann follows her to the precipice of disaster. A film about blind love and other obsessive destructive behaviors, with a lush and aptly repetitive musical refrain courtesy of composer Michel Legrand.
