A tout prendre / Take It All (1963) DVD5
Claude is uncertain. He is a young bourgeois man with a number of accomplishments, but his life has reached an impasse. He begins to question the choices he's made and life's possibilities. Everything is under critical scrutiny: his family, his relationships, whether or not to become a father with his Haitian girlfriend, and most importantly, what to decide about his sexual orientation. Structured loosely as Claude's own personal confessions and filled with allusions to jazz, poetry and French New Wave cinema, A tout prendre offers up Claude's experience as symptomatic of the concerns, intellectual and otherwise, of the first post-Quiet Revolution generation of the 1960s. It is a generation that is restless, impatient, energetic, and about to assume economic and political control.
