Rendezvous in July (1949)
Critic Reviews for Rendezvous in July
"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.
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.
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.
