The Soft Skin

The Soft Skin

Truffaut followed up the international phenomenon Jules et Jim with this tense tale of infidelity. The unassuming Jean Desailly is perfectly cast as a celebrated literary scholar, seemingly happily married, who embarks on a dangerous affair with a gorgeous stewardess, played by Françoise Dorléac. Truffaut made The Soft Skin at a time when he was immersing himself in the work of Alfred Hitchcock, and that master's influence can be felt throughout this complex French New Wave treasure.
