Five Day Lover / L’amant de cinq jours (1961) Philippe de Broca, Jean Seberg, Micheline Presle, Jean-Pierre Cassel, Comedy, Drama

During Madeleine’s fashion show Claire meets Antoine and becomes his mistress. Due to the fact that she’s married (to a wealthy man) she only spends a few days a week with him. Antoine is also rich, and often taken to meetings by his chauffeur, Marius. However things are more complicated: Antoine is Madeleine lover (Claire’s best friend) while George, Claire’s husband is quite rich and has a modest job. Everything works perfectly until Madeleine discovers the truth. She prepares her vengéance and organizes a celebration which she invites Antoine, Claire and George.

Antoine est entretenu par Madeleine, la directrice d’une maison de haute couture. Mais, pour séduire Claire, la meilleure amie de Madeleine, il lui fait croire qu’il est riche. De son côté, Claire lui dit que son époux est diplomate, alors qu’il est en fait archiviste…

Described as a comedy this film is really a “comedie” in the French meaning. It is drama with a smile on its face. The final scene is moving and hauntingly etched in memory forever. Never was Jean Seberg so lovely in spite of portraying a woman approaching middle age. One of the greats!
