Bay of Angels - Baie des anges (1963)
by Jacques Demy
 
This precisely wrought, emotionally penetrating romantic drama from  Jacques Demy, set largely in the casinos of Nice, is a visually lovely but darkly realistic investigation into love and obsession. A bottle-blonde Jeanne Moreau is at her blithe best as a gorgeous gambling addict, and Claude Mann is the bank clerk drawn into her risky world. Featuring a mesmerizing score by Michel Legrand, Bay of Angels is among Demy's most somber works.

Caroline Webber - Author Talk & Book Signing 

Geneviève Halévy Bizet Straus; Laure de Sade, Comtesse de Adhéaume de Chevigné; and Élisabeth de Riquet de Caraman-Chimay, the Comtesse Greffulhe--these were the three superstars of fin-de-siècle Parisian high society who, as Caroline Weber says, "transformed themselves, and were transformed by those around them, into living legends: unhappily married, these women sought freedom and fulfillment by reinventing themselves, between the 1870s and 1890s, as icons. At their fabled salons, they inspired the creativity of writers, visual artists, composers, designers, and journalists. Against Weber takes the reader into these women's daily lives of masked balls, hunts, dinners, court visits, nights at the opera or theater. Proust, as a twenty-year-old law student in 1892, would worship them from afar, and later meet them and create his celebrated composite character for The Remembrance of Things Past.

Caroline Weber is Professor of French and Comparative Literature at Barnard College,  where she specializes in the literature and history of the French ancien régime, Enlightenment, and Revolution, and teaches courses on 17th-century drama, 18th-century fiction and philosophy, Proust, Dada, and Surrealism, along with thematic comparative and survey courses such as Literature and Justice, Jealousy in French Literature, and Myths of Oedipus.
