Summary
"Starring Jeanne Moreau (Diary of a Chambermaid, The Immortal Story) as the man-eating title character, Eva is the story of one man's downfall at the hand (and body!) of a poisonous femme fatale. Set in the glorious surrounds of 1960s Venice, Eva tells the story of Tyvian Jones, a sham writer who is promoting his novel during the literary festival. It is here that he meets Eva, a beguiling temptress with a heart of stone. In spite of his lovely, charming fiance, Francesca, Tyvian becomes obsessed with Eva, falling for her coy flirtations and seductive methods like a schoolboy. How can Tyvian survive such a fall? Jeanne Moreau is at her coquettish, cold-hearted best as the nasty Eva in Joseph Losey's underrated masterpiece, which features some of the most beautiful footage of 1960s Italy ever captured on film." -- Container
