A Simple Story (Une simple histoire). 1959. France. Written and directed by Marcel Hanoun. With Raymond Jourdan, Gilette Barbier, Madeleine Mario. DCP. In French; English subtitles. 68 min.
This first film by Marcel Hanoun, a genuine filmmaker whose work remains unjustly overlooked, is at once precise, cruel, and moving, the neorealist chronicle of a woman who migrates from the provinces to Paris in search of work. Courtesy Re:Voir Video
