Le Silence de la Mer (1949)

Melville's extraordinary first feature, an adaptation of Vercors' classic novella about the French Resistance, is in effect a triangular drama in which two people don't speak. A German officer, convalescing from a wound, is billeted on an elderly Frenchman and his niece. Respecting their obstinate refusal to address the hated invader, he meets their silence with a series of monologues, apparently ignored, in which he recalls his life before the war and all the things he values; but what he reveals about himself causes the girl to fall in love, without being able to declare her feelings.

Starring: Howard Vernon (I), Nicole Stéphane, Jean-Marie Robain, Ami Aaröe, Georges Patrix, Denis Sadier
Director: Jean-Pierre Melville
