David Perlov based his first film,
made in Paris, on the sarcastic pictures and texts of a14 year
old girl, Margueritte Bonnaevay, who lived in Lyon at the end
of the 19th Century. He had found the girl's album in the attic
of the house he was living in. The poet Jacques Prevert wrote
the introduction to the film, the composer Germaine Tailleferre,
of the group of composers "Les Six", composed the
music, and the flautist Jean Pierre Rampal played the solo part.
The three renowned figures volunteered to participate in the
project due to its high artistic standards. The film received
enthusiastic reviews in the French press.
