Directed by Jean-Luc Godard and Franco Indovina and Michael Pfleghar and Claude Autant-Lara and Mauro Bolognini and Philippe de Broca
The Oldest Profession
Six of Europe’s finest directors trace the evolution of prostitution from the Stone Age to the Space Age in The Oldest Profession (Le plus vieux métier du monde, 1967), a saucy, star-studded omnibus film made up of:
Franco Indovina’s Michèle Mercier seduces Neanderthal the prehistoric era Man with cave paint as makeup.
Mauro Bolognini’s The Emperor discovers that he’s paying roman nights for what his wife, Elsa Martinelli, is selling.
Philipe de Broca’s Jeanne Moreau’s latest client is more Mademoiselle Mimi interested in the guillotine than her charms.
Michael Pfleghar’s Raquel Welch masquerades as an honest woman The Gay Nineties for the love and wallet of an elderly banker.
Claude Autant-Lara’s France Anglade and Nadia Gray PARIS Today turn tricks by ambulance.
Jean-Luc Godard’s A man from outer space is taught in the Anticipation ways of sentimental love by Anna Karina.
