French filmmaker Jacques Demy brings a fresh look at LA and American youth, plus a revealing eye for the character and feel of the sprawling California city.

And it is a work of love in its attitude towards the city and its characters. Demy can be sentimental, sans bathos or mawkishness, and comes up with a day in the life of a 26-year-old youthful drifter whose one romantic interlude is a step in coping with his life.

There is not much story here, but rather a revealing series of incidents that serve as a backdrop for a poetic tale of human disarray, fleeting comprehension and a surface gentleness that belies an underlying discontent and groping for meaning, love and aim by its disparate but well mimed characters.
