Lamiel is a 1967 French drama film. It was directed by Jean Aurel and stars Anna Karina, Michel Bouquet, and Jean-Claude Brialy.[1]

The film is based on Stendhal's unfinished last novel, Lamiel. A costume drama set in the 19th century, it centers on the young orphan Lamiel (Karina) as she rises from poverty into high society under the guidance of a doctor (Bouquet), who lives vicariously through her. She eventually marries a bankrupt comte (Brialy), but falls for a thief who breaks into her bedroom one night.[1]
