LES ORGUEILLEUX

(1953, Yves Allégret) Michèle Morgan and Gérard Philipe cross paths in a seedy Mexican coastal town: the aristocratic Morgan, newly widowed by a rapidly spreading plague of meningitis and flat broke in a flea-bag hotel; the derelict Philipe, bobbing and weaving his way through an endless, unshaven binge. Based on Sartre’s novel L’Amour Redempteur — set in China. Approx. 103 min. 35mm.

REVIEWS

“The China Coast of Sartre’s L’Amour redempteur has become Veracruz in Yves Allegret’s film, but the milieu is still in the depths: heat, squalor, disease, and desperation, exotic but unbearable.
– Pauline Kael
