  • A Beautiful Life

    France. Directed by Robert Enrico. Screenplay by Enrico. Dialogue by Maurice Pons. With Frédéric de Pasquale, Josée Steiner, Odile Geoffroy. Frédéric, a young man returning from two years of military service in Algeria, marries Sylvie and settles in picturesque Paris with hopes of resuming his former life as a photographer. The film—the title of which is rendered ironic by recurrent documentary footage linking the miseries of poor nations, colonial warfare, and police brutality within France—points out the disparity between the dreams of young people and the cruel realities of the world in the 1960s. 105 min.
