Une chambre en ville

N.p. N.p., Circa 1982. Three vintage reference photographs from the set of the 1982 film, one of Jacques Demy and Dominique Sanda, and two of Demy and crew with camera. One with with provenance stamp of film scholar and author "Jean-Pierre Berthome" on verso.

Although similar to Demy's 1964 "The Umbrellas of Cherbourg" in that it is an operettta-musical in which all the dialogue is sung, here Demy is much more explicitly political, and possibly even more tragic.

Set during the Nantes worker's strike in 1955, shipyard worker Francois Guilbaud, a strikers, falls in love with his upper-class landlady's married daughter, Edith.

Set in and shot on location in Nantes, France.

1) 9.5 x 6 inches, 2) 9.5 x 7 inches. Near Fine.
