Confidentially Yours Details


In this light, sometimes tongue-in-cheek mystery based on a [[Performer~P305641~Charles Williams~charleswilliams]] thriller -- with snippets of [[Performer~P94487~Hitchcock~alfredhitchcock]], [[Performer~P98221~Kubrick~stanleykubrick]], and even [[Performer~P310601~Victor Hugo~victorhugo]] -- director [[Performer~P114620~François Truffaut~françoistruffaut]] showcases one of his favorite actresses, [[Performer~P2121~Fanny Ardant~fannyardant]], as an enterprising secretary in love with her boss but up against clearing him of murder. Julien Vercel ([[Performer~P71810~Jean-Louis Trintignant~jeanlouistrintignant]]) is a real estate dealer accused of killing his wife and her lover. He hides in his office while his secretary, Barbara ([[Performer~P2121~Ardant~fannyardant]]), sets out to discover what really happened and why. When Barbara starts looking into the dark past of her boss' wife, she comes across illicit love affairs, a prostitution ring, and shady private detectives, until, finally, her suspicions turn toward Julien's lawyer himself. Tragically, Vivement Dimanche was to be [[Performer~P114620~Truffaut~françoistruffaut]]'s last film; the great French director died of a cancerous brain tumor in 1984. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi
