Disorder

France, 1950 (MIFF 1963, History)

Director: Jacques Baratier

A bright, inconsequent, irresponsible tour of existentialist Paris; an elaborate avant garde joke, photographed mainly in the streets, theatres and jazz cellars of St. Germain de Pres. It features guest appearances galore, an existentialist commentary, and a finale set in the future as the aged director totters off to be received at last into L'Academie Francaise.
