Based on the sensational best-seller written by Francoise Sagan when she was still a teenager, this film tells the story of a single cataclysmic summer.  Cecile lives in Paris with her rich playboy father, Raymond.

She succeeds with greater finality than she intended.

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • This was the second and last film Jean Seberg made for the man who discovered her, Otto Preminger. He sold her contract with him to Columbia Pictures, the distributors of this film, and they gave her unrewarding roles in "The Mouse That Roared" and "Let No Man Write My Epitaph", which did nothing to advance her career. As a result, the studio made no objections to her appearing in a low-budget French film with an unknown director. The film was "A Bout De Souffle", the director was Jean-Luc Godard, and Seberg's performance was a revelation, making her an international star immediately. She stayed in French films for most of the rest of her career, and her occasional American films were never as successful.
