Details

Documentary about Parisians in the summer of 1960. Sociologist Edgar Morin and anthropologist Jean Rouch interview a selection of young Parisian adults to obtain their views on a number of societal and philosophical issues including happiness and the working class, and encourage debate amongst their peers. As an epilogue, the film-makers invite all the participants to a special screening and record their reactions as they watch the often unflattering portraits of themselves. They are then asked to voice their opinion on the level of truth they believe the film achieved. Documentary about Parisians in the summer of 1960.
