Included on 2-disc box set Early Short Films of the French New Wave.

As the spring melt floods the streets of a town outside Paris, a student (Caroline Dim) faces one obstacle after another while trying to get to the Sorbonne. Eventually, she meets up with a dashing young driver (Jean-Claude Brialy) who is at first more enamoured of his Ford sedan than of her. This is a delightful short driven by the lead character’s stream-of-consciousness narration (filled with clever wordplay, and including her thoughts on everything from Beaudelaire to the playfulness of art) as she and her newfound beau navigate flooded streets and fields. Co-directed by François Truffaut and Jean-Luc Godard.
