Milou en Mai - May Fools

"Jean-Claude Carrière and I were both in Paris in May '68," Louis Malle reminisced. "Miloš Forman was there also, and, coming from Prague where everybody was fed up with socialism, he was horrified that the students wanted to raise the red flag. But for Jean-Claude and myself, it seemed to be the culmination of surrealism. There was something about it that was really fun." Inspired by Chekhov and Jean Renoir, Malle and Carrière's comic "divertimento" basks in the idylls of an eccentric bourgeois family at their Bordeaux estate, blissfully oblivious to the raving hoards of Stalinist youth in faraway Paris.
