Camille 2000 (1969).

 

Director: Radley Metzger

Stars: Danièle Gaubert, Nino Castelnuovo, and Eleonora Rossi Drago.

 

Film based on the 1852 novel and play La Dame aux Camélias by Alexandre Dumas, fils. It was adapted by Michael DeForrest and directed by Radley Metzger. It stars Danièle Gaubert and Nino Castelnuovo with Eleonora Rossi Drago and Massimo Serato. The film featured a drug use theme not present in the source story.

 

With Camille 2000, Metzger began to let his experimental impulses emerge.

 

The film's opening credit appears on a clapboard while a crew member reads the title (“take one”) and snaps the cast into action, giving the impression that the entire film springs naturally from its starting point, that it's some sort of improvisational, one-take lark. Camille turns one of George Cukor's finest melodramas (both are based on Alexandre Dumas's novel) into a Mediterranean burlesque on the philosophy of hedonism, a Bonjour Tristesse for the languid Blowup jetset, complete with a definitive lounge-lizard score. (And, like with the party quip of Alley Cats, Metzger winks at his own mystique when one character observes the cross-section of society at an opera performance: “the cream of international society… and a bit of the scum.”).
