A Single Girl (French: La Fille seule) is a 1995 French drama film directed by Benoît Jacquot. It follows a day in the life of a young Parisian woman named Valérie (played by Virginie Ledoyen) who begins a new job at a four star hotel the same day she reveals to her boyfriend that she is pregnant. The 90 minute film is shot in real time, with a very mobile camera style, recalling the French New Wave.[1]

This was the breakthrough role for the 19-year-old Ledoyen (who later became known in America for the 2000 film The Beach), and earned her a César Award nomination.
