The opening film credits to "J'irai cracher sur vos tombes" (I Spit On Your Graves)
Boris Vian hated this film with a passion. In fact he passed away at its private screening. I saw the film in French (and I don't speak the language) and visually it's an odd film. A very 1950's French version of what a small American town looks like. Since the main character works in a bookstore (that alone is worth seeing the film) it is interesting what they pick up as "American culture." The soundtrack by Alain Goraguer is superb. In fact all his music is superb. Someone really needs to put a focus on his work.
