Zazie is the precocious and foul-mouthed 10-year old kid from Louis Malle’s adaptation of Raymond Queneau’s 1959 novel of the same name. Zazie dans le Métro is a visual treat with a mashup of slapstick comedy, new wave flair and Looney Toons-esque gags. Malle wanted audiences to experience the wonders of Paris from the perspective of a child, going so far as to filming from the height of child’s eyes and using wide angle lenses. And of course, Catherine Demongeot shines in the title role despite her brashness and disobedience of her character — or perhaps because of it 🙂
Country-of-origin French posters for this film are extremely rare and desirable. This larger size 1-panel is particularly scarce — it’s the first copy to surface in many years and it has never sold at a major auction.
