Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
Saint Tropez Blues is the first film directed by Marcel Moussy who started off his screenwriting career just before this with a bang (The 400 Blows and Shoot the Piano Player, both directed by François Truffaut). But this New Wave sex comedy is not quite there yet. Its heroine is Anne-Marie (Marie Laforet) who goes south with her childhood friend Jean-Paul (Jacques Higelin) instead of hitting the books at home. The friends join up with artist-types in Saint Tropez, and though the ambiance is carefree and casual, Anne-Marie manages to survive the hijinks and the ardor of would-be admirers. In the end, she starts to fall for one man in particular.
