Paris, the summer of 1957. Despite material difficulties, a group of young actors are preparing to stage a production of William Shakespeare's Pericles, Princeof Tyre. However, their rehearsals are disrupted by various events. Anne, who came to see her brother, Pierre, causes a commotion in the group by flirting with one of the guys. At the same time, Philip, an American victim of McCarthyism, stirs up fears among members of the troupe by telling them about a conspiracy that led to the suicide of a Spanish composer. Jacques Rivette's first feature film, which was shot between 1958 and 1961, is marked by numerous elements of the director's characteristic style, especially the relationship between the theater and cinema.

(1928 - 2016) Despite being a key member of the Nouvelle Vague, Jacques Rivette has languished in the shadows of his more renowned colleagues: Godard, Rohmer, Chabrol and Truffaut. Rivette's work is certainly demanding, but along with Godard, Rivette turns out to have been the most playful and innovative of a group who literally changed the face of filmmaking. Jacques Rivette was born in Rouen, France. In the fifties, he begin writing for the "Cahiers du Cinéma", which teamed him with Nouvelle Vague. In 1960 he directed his first feature film with Paris nous appartient (60). His filmography includes La Religieuse, L'Amour fou, Duelle, La Bande des quatre and La Belle Noiseuse.
