The debut film of the Frenchman Louis Malle and again the film adaptation. The plot revolves around lovers planning the perfect murder of the heroine's husband. But the plan is thwarted by a trivial accident - the man who needs to be killed gets stuck in the elevator. “It is worth seeing to at least see how Jeanne Moreau walks through the streets of Paris.

"Tender Skin", 1964

The French film directed by François Truffaut was named Best European Film of 1964 in Denmark. The plot again touches on the topic of treason (as we already understood, Almodovar is especially interested in it).
