"La Chamade" is a 1968 French romantic drama film written and directed by Alain Cavalier and starring Catherine Deneuve, Michel Piccoli, and Roger Van Hool. Based on the 1965 novel La Chamade by Françoise Sagan, the film is about a beautiful woman who is mistress to a rich, good-hearted businessman who provides for all her material needs, but for whom she has no true love. When she meets a charming young man her own age, she falls in love and soon becomes pregnant with his child. After Charles helps her through her crisis, her feelings for the young man gradually fades and she returns to the good-hearted businessman who has patiently waited for her. La Chamade was filmed on location in Paris and Nice.
