Claude Autant-Lara

Le mariage de Chiffon

Le mariage de Chiffon

This delightful comedy brought Claude Autant-Lara his first popular success as a director. Chiffon (Odette Joyeux) is being pushed by her mother to wed a dashing military officer (André Luguet) but finds herself drawn to her stepfather’s penniless brother (Jacques Dumesnil). For Le mariage de Chiffon, Autant-Lara convened the creative team—including screenwriter Jean Aurenche, cameraman Philippe Agostini, and the incomparable Joyeux—that would reunite for each of his subsequent three features, initiating a remarkable run of sharp love stories.
