About the Event
(1960, 106 minutes)
Les Diaboliques director Henri-Georges Clouzot put ‘60s French sex symbol Brigitte Bardot on trial in his 1960 noir — much as the press had done for her sexually liberated image — as a carefree modern woman accused of murdering her lover. But as Harvard Film Archive points out, “with La Verité Clouzot responded to the accusations of his own irrelevance hurled by the nouvelle vague upstarts who brazenly grouped him together with the so-called ‘cinéma du papa’ of the old guard that they adamantly repudiated.” La vérité was nominated for Best Foreign Language Film at the Academy Awards.
