A Single Girl (La Fille Seule)


(0ut of 5)

Benoit Jacquot was inspired by Agnes Varda’s cool new wave classic Cleo From 5 to 7 to make a similar real-time drama of his own. It stars  as a young woman on the first day of her new job working as a chambermaid in a Parisian hotel. Following her around for ninety minutes, Jacquot’s solid camerawork never for a minute runs out of things to show, from troubled hotel guests to Ledoyen’s arguments with her moody boyfriend (). Great film from a director poised on making even better films in the following years and an excellent lead performance by a very young but very talented Ledoyen.
