Paris Belongs to Us
by Jacques Rivette

Jacques Rivette provocative directorial debut follows a young literature student who befriends the members of a group of twenty-something intellectuals in Paris, united by the apparent suicide of an acquaintance. This mystery film depicts the bohemian Parisian life in the late 1950s, framed in a lingering post–World War II disillusionment while evincing the fascination with theatrical performance and conspiracy.
