Édouard et Caroline (1951)

Becker’s offbeat comedy about a failing marriage is surprisingly dark at times.

Co-written with an aspiring young actress for whom the director had just left his wife, this offbeat comedy deals with a young couple whose marriage is broken apart when he – a talented concert pianist yet to be discovered – is persuaded to perform at a party filled with her pretentious friends and rich relations. An intimate, droll film which is surprisingly dark at times.
