A Story of Water (1961)



Reviews and Comments

Francois Truffaut and Jean-Luc Godard co-directed this short film about a blossoming romance amidst a widespread flood in France. The action itself is silent; a narrator fills us in on the dialogue while making whimsical observations about life. The photography of the flooding is beautiful and gives the film a lyrical feel.
