La peau douce

Directed by François Truffaut

One of Truffaut’s subtlest and most richly rewarding films, this account of an extra-marital affair displays the influence of two of the director’s idols: Renoir and Hitchcock.

A rich director of literary magazine, Pierre, falls in love with a young air hostess. They spend a few happy days together, but when, after a stormy scene with his wife, Pierre asks Nicole to live with him, she refuses to give up her independence.
