Bay of Angels
Bay of Angels • 1h 24m
Directed by Jacques Demy • 1963 • France
Starring Jeanne Moreau, Claude Mann
This precisely wrought, emotionally penetrating romantic drama from Jacques Demy, set largely in the casinos of Nice, is a visually lovely but darkly realistic investigation into love and obsession. A bottle-blonde Jeanne Moreau is at her blithe best as a gorgeous gambling addict, and Claude Mann is the bank clerk drawn into her risky world. Featuring a mesmerizing score by Michel Legrand, BAY OF ANGELS is among Demy’s most somber works.
