About this movie

An amoral French girl and her playboy father discover the dark side of passion in this sizzling 1950 adaptation of Françoise Sagan's notorious bestseller. Jean Seberg is Cecile, the spoiled 17-year-old daughter of Raymond (David Niven), a wealthy Parisian widower vacationing in a sumptuous villa on the French Riviera. Their shallow, pleasure-seeking existence is threatened when Raymond decides to marry Cecile's straight laced godmother, Anne (Deborah Kerr) who disapproves od the teenager's steamy summer affair with Philippe (Geoffrey Home). To keep her carefree world from being shattered, Cecile plots to drive Anne away. But it's "Goodbye Happiness" and "Bonjour Tristesse" ("Hello Sadness") when the plan takes an unexpected turn.
