This is my favorite scene from the 1961 French New Wave film "Chronique d'un été: Paris 1960". Go find it and watch it.

As written by Morin in an article "For a new Direct Cinema":
'This film is an investigation. The milieu of research is Paris. It is not a fiction film. Its research involves real life. It is not a documentary. This investigation does not want to describe; rather it is an experience lived by its authors and actors. It is not, strictly speaking, a sociological film. Sociological cinema investigates society. It is an ethnographic film in its purest sense: it investigates people. It involves a cinematic interrogation: "How do you live?" This entails not simply hod you live (housing, work, leisure activities), but also your style of living, your attitude toward yourself and others, the way you perceive the deepest problems and how you see the solution to those problems.'


Also, the subtitles are mediocre, but stick to it, as it pays off.
