Henri Colpi was already a noticeable figure in editing, notably alongside Alain Resnais and, occasionally, Agnès Varda. He directed his first and most memorable feature film in 1961, which was based on a script co-written by Marguerite Duras and later crowned by The Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival. A moving questioning of memory and the ways in which real memories—as well as emotions—build or reconstruct relationships between people.
