Movie Info

In this film, teen-aged Lucien aspires to become a filmmaker and to that end organizes his friends into a film unit. The young cineasts hope to make a journey into Africa to film an uncompromisingly realistic documentary. Amusingly, Lucien and his friends are shown to be rather ill-equipped for "real life."


Critic Reviews for Rendezvous in July

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (4)

"Rendezvous"... is superabundant in charm, wit and soul, and has many expressive visual touches.

Becker turns his attention to a new generation of postwar youths whose freethinking creativity embraces jazz, theatre, and, above all, the cinema itself.

July 30, 2018 | Full Review…

Allowing that the film's milieu and range of situations had not yet become hackneyed, Becker's characters are still very thin (the dreamer, the schemer, the cheeky comic relief), the tone rather uncertain.

Top Critic

Jacques Becker was one of the best French directors to emerge after the occupation, combining the elevated realism of Jean Renoir (for whom he'd worked as an assistant) with a flair for black comedy and caricature.

An interseting portrait of the period, it provides refreshing roles for a number of newcomers.
