Le Bonheur

Varda's first film to be made in colour, Le Bonheur won the Special Jury Prize at the Berlin Film Festival in 1965 when it was first released.

The film follows François, a young carpenter who lives a happy, uncomplicated life with his wife Thérèse and their two small children. One day he meets Emilie, a clerk in the local post office and the pair begin a torrid affair with François trying to lead his life loving both women.

Le Bonheur is an illuminating look at happiness and how it is not always cheerful, with Varda using the simple framing of a love triangle to delve deep into her character sensuality with this beautifully filmed drama.
