Pierre Étaix: The Lost Laugh

The Suitor

Le Soupirant
France | 1962 | Pierre Étaix

The Suitor

Pierre Étaix’s first feature finds the French comic playing a shy and studious young man who is urged by his mother to marry. Knowing nothing of romance or courtship, he proposes to the first available woman he sees, his family’s Swedish au pair, but she does not understand what he’s saying. So he leaves the house to observe and learn the ways of love, and gets involved with a string of unsuitable women. “The most successful feature by Étaix.” –The Holt Foreign Film Guide.
