The Soft Skin (Truffaut, 1964)

Here’s a recent piece covering another gem from Francois Truffaut, one of my favorite directors of all time. The Soft Skin is a deceptively dark melodrama, almost pitch black in its skewering of French institutions like marriage, academia, and politics. I reviewed it for the film’s week-long theatrical run at New York City’s Film Forum from March 11-17. If you live in or around NYC, I highly recommend checking it out.
