English title: "The Soft Skin." An overlooked film by French auteur Francois Truffaut ("Jules and Jim," "The 400 Blows"). Francoise Dorleac is the sister of Catherine Deneuve.

What to say, really? The years have not been kind to this picture. What once would have been a shocking, detailed meditation upon marital disharmony and sudden passion now seems dreadfully bourgeois and tired. The film-making itself is prosaic, and only the director's wry commentary on the provincial art scene, and Dorleac's stunning presence have the least bit of freshness now. Unfortunately the whole thing comes off kind of smug and bloodless. (Rather like its hero).
