Le Combat dans L Le Combat dans L'ile (1962)
Summary: All too little known today, Le combat dans l'île subtly evokes a divided marriage -- not unusual in French films -- and a divided nation -- but not divided as seen in the then-dominant Nouvelle Vague. Political assassinations (the attempts on DeGaulle reached double figures), underground extreme right-wing groups, even international, right-wing fugitives -- producer Louis Malle was clearly making a political statement distinct from that of his New Wave confrères.

Liberté, la nuit Liberté, la nuit (1983)
Summary: A title with a comma in the middle for a film divided in two parts. A film in black and white with a dark side and a jovial side. The first part of the title evokes politics, as the story recalls the days of the Algerian War of Independence; the second part represents the mood that hovers over the eminently painful images. There isn't even a hint of daylight in the freedom of the title. It only lives metaphorically in the darkness and languor of the night. (Violeta Kovacsics)

Anémone Anémone (1968)
Summary: "Anemone" is the portrait of a young girl from the Parisian bourgeoisie. As a brief shot indicates us, it could have been called "Portrait of the artist as a young girl." though probably "young girl" is just a previous title, but the style and the presence of the Father leaves no doubt about who paints and who's hiding behind the young girl.
