Manon 70 is a 1968 French (French-Italian-German co-production) film starring Catherine Deneuve, Jean-Claude Brialy and Sammy Frey. The screenplay was written by Jean Aurel with Cécil Saint-Laurent and directed by Jean Aurel.
The original music of the movie is by Serge Gainsbourg.
Manon (Catherine Deneuve) is an amoral, free spirit who uses sex to surround herself in relatively luxurious surroundings.
Journalist Francois (Sami Frey) sees her at the airport and falls in love with her. Once they land in Paris, he makes his move and steals her from the man she's been traveling with.
Francois and Manon fall in love but Manon's brother (Jean-Claude Brialy), wants to live off his sister and causes trouble. Manon tries seeing a wealthy man (Robert Webber) at the same time as Francois.
