The film

Synopsis

Stanislas, a young sociologist researching a book on women criminals, travels to a prison to interview Camille, an inmate incarcerated for murdering her lover, husband and supposedly her father. Upon meeting, Stanislas discovers Camille to have a surprising air of innocence and soon finds himself becoming enraptured by her charms. But all that glitters isn’t gold – and sometimes it’s actually cold, hard steel. A rare foray into pitch-black comedy and pulpy, exploitation-noir, A Gorgeous Girl Like Me nevertheless bears the hallmarks of Truffaut’s trademark directorial flair and precision. One of the lesser-known moments of his career, but a remarkable film all the same.
