Cast & Segments
"Saint-Germain-des-Prés" Directed by Jean Douchet
Segment about an American girl student taken in by a French playboy and gets wise to another's ways. Director Douchet was at the time, like Eric Rohmer, a freshly resigned critic from Cahiers du Cinema best known later for book on Hitchcock.
"Gare du Nord" Directed by Jean Rouch
Segment shows the influence of documentary and 16 mm as Rouch uses almost one long hand-held continuous take, following Odile from a breakfast table argument with her boyfriend (producer/director Barbet Schroeder in an early role), whom she is bored and irritated by, into the street where she meets a mysterious man, who seems to be the answer to all her complaints,that wants her to go away with him otherwise he will kill himself.
"Rue Saint-Denis" Directed by Jean-Daniel Pollet
Format again inflects form in Jean Daniel Pollet's segment with comedy as stage actress Michelline Dax plays the worldly Parisian prostitute broadly as she kindheartedly makes fun of her inexperienced customer of who like a few New Wave actors riffs Buster Keaton.
"Place de l'Etoile" Directed by Eric Rohmer
- Marcel Gallon as Victim
- Jean-Michel Rouzière as Jean-Marc
- Georges Bez
- Jean Douchet as A client
- Sarah Georges-Picot
- Maya Josse as Woman in the metro

"Montparnasse-Levallois" Directed by Jean-Luc Godard
Segment interprets the news story that Alfred Lubitsch (Jean-Paul Belmondo) reads to Angela (Anna Karina) in a restaurant in A Woman Is a Woman (1961). Itself based on a Jean Giraudoux story "La Méprise" with the genders reversed in the film where two women receive the letters mistakenly sent by their lover to the wrong person. Notably shot by American documentarian Albert Maysles, not Raoul Coutard, showing the woman's plight, Monica, to retrieve and amend the letters she sent.
"La Muette" Directed by Claude Chabrol
- Stéphane Audran as The mother
- Claude Chabrol as The father
- Gilles Chusseau as Boy
- Dany Saril as The maid
Known for his Hitchcockian 'horror-beneath-the-bourgeois-surface' exposed on film, director Claude Chabrol himself plays the 'bourgeois' father here with his then-wife Stephane Audran as the mother of a mischievous boy who starts putting ear-plugs in his ears to keep from hearing their constant arguments playfully exploiting the critical-laden term diegesis.
