Bonjour Tristesse, 1958.
This starred Jean Seberg, David Niven, and Deborah Kerr.
Jean played Cecile, a young woman who's living with her father Raymond (David Niven) on the French Riviera for the summer.
They're also living with Raymond's young girlfriend, Elsa (Mylene Demongeot). But Elsa is fun, so Cecile (a spoiled rich girl, who doesn't like anyone messing with her and her father's way of life) doesn't mind having her around. Plus she knows Raymond wouldn't really get serious with anyone....would he?
In comes Anne (Deborah Kerr), who's an old friend of her late mother and Raymond.
At first Cecile doesn't mind Anne's company....until Anne starts telling her what to do (like not kissing her boyfriend in broad daylight, and working on her school studies)! And especially when Anne and Raymond suddenly get involved seriously...and want to get married!
Cecile is having NONE of that! She needs to get rid of Anne for good.
Knowing her father is a womanizer (or was, until he reconnected with Anne), she uses that for her plan...
Cecile employs Elsa's help (who isn't very bright sometimes....) to get Elsa to seduce Raymond...and Elsa does.
Course Anne sees this, and can no longer marry Raymond. So she drives away to go back home, where she ends up having a fatal crash....poor Anne.
After that, Raymond and Cecile are back to their regular lives at home. Raymond with his womanizer ways, and Cecile with her guilt, for inadvertently causing Anne's death, and her father's happiness.
This movie is very good. The location is amazing, makes me want to go there whenever I watch the movie!
I love Jean Seberg's style and hair. And I LOVE Deborah Kerr! She was wonderful as always.
As well as David Niven.
