L’ homme qui aimait les femmes / The man who loved women

Μυθοπλασία/Fiction, Γαλλία, 1976, 118’, Εγχρ./Color, Με ήχο/sound

A film on fetishistic love, a theme also recurring often in Hitchcock’s films. A man, who doesn’t love women as such but adores their calves, ultimately pays the price by his death. The film opens and closes with his funeral, in which only women attend. “I was interested in showing a man completely alone[...] His loneliness is apparently inhabited, but the only one he can trust is the viewer” says Truffaut in an interview with Peter Michel Ladiges.
