Louis Malle unveiled the natural beauty of Jeanne Moreau in his breakthrough, _Elevator to the Gallows_. With his follow-up, the scandalous smash _The Lovers_ (_Les amants_), he made her a star once and for all. A deeply felt and luxuriously filmed fairy tale for grown-ups, perched on the edge between classical and New Wave cinemas, _The Lovers_ presents Moreau as a restless bourgeois wife whose eye wanders from both her husband and her lover to an attractive passing stranger (Jean-Marc Bory). Thanks to its frank sexuality, _The Lovers_ caused quite a stir, being censored and attacked for obscenity around the world. If today its shock has worn off, its glistening sensuality and seductive storytelling haven’t aged a day.
