Francoise Hardy and French pop in Continental Film Review

Found this article about French pop in Continental Film Review (October 1964) – Françoise Hardy gets a good review, obviously:

Francoise Hardy on Film: Une balle au coeur

I haven’t posted anything about Françoise Hardy for a little while but today I’ve been looking through back issues of Continental Film Review and I’ve found a few bits and pieces about her that I thought I should share.

I’ve not yet managed to obtain a copy of Une balle au coeur so it was interesting to find this report about the film and some shots of Françoise and Sami Frey working on it.  This is from the August 1965 issue of Continental Film Review:

It goes without saying but I’ll say it anyway – if you have this film, please get in touch as I’d love to see it.  Thanks!

Who Are You, Leonie Lousseau? Pt 5

In my last post about  Léonie Lousseau I mentioned that she had made an appearance in Charles Matton’s 1972 film L’Italien des roses – a film which I haven’t been to get my hands on yet.  But today whilst reading my back issues of Continental Film Review  (April 1972 issue) I came across this article about the film.  No mention of Léonie of course (I suspect she had a very small supporting role) but at least it gives you an idea what the film is like.  If I find anything else I’ll post it, obviously.  And if anyone has the film, please get in touch as I’d love a copy.
