Melvin Van Peebles’ first film, made in France where the young filmmaker lived in exile from America’s segregated film industry, is a fascinating take on the Nouvelle Vague as seen through the eyes of a sensitive Black American. It is, as the title implies, the chronicle of a whirlwind romance between a Black American soldier on leave in Paris and a white woman. A major rediscovery and a wonderful stylistic hybrid. Newly restored.
