A Single Girl
Directed by Benoît Jacquot
Written by Benoît Jacquot, Jérôme Beajour
Starring Benoît Magimel, Dominique Valadié, Virginie Ledoyen
Run time 90 min
A day in the life of a young and independent Parisian girl that is shot in real time as she copes with work and relationships. “Just as she's about to start a job with room service at a luxury hotel in Paris, a young woman (Virginie Ledoyen) tells her boyfriend that she's pregnant and wants to keep their child. They quarrel but arrange to meet an hour later; the film then follows her at work for that hour in real time. This segment of Benoit Jacquot's compelling 1995 feature, written with Jerome Beaujour, is a stunning demonstration of moral and existential suspense in relation to duration, much like Agnes Varda's 1961 Cleo From 5 to 7.” – Jonathan Rosenbaum
