Mississippi Mermaid
director:
François Truffaut
cast:
Catherine Deneuve, Jean-Paul Belmondo

A love story masked as a thriller, this Truffaut/Deneuve classic tells an enchanting story of desire and deception on a tropical island. Deneuve arrives as a mail order bride for a wealthy cigarette company owner and the two fall helplessly in love—or do they? Inspired by Hitchcock’s Vertigo, the film is “full of lovely, complex things—of unannounced emotions, of ideas, of the memories of other movies.” (Vincent Canby, NY Times)
