Le Temps d'une vente

Top of page

A stranger enters a small village grocery store to buy a pair of gloves and a package of cigarettes; by the time he leaves he has sold the store owner an enormous quantity of cookies, ensnaring him in a carefully woven web of delicate enticements. Lasting only for the duration of the sale, this film reveals how the success of at least one travelling salesman depends upon subtle maneuvering rather than insistence. (Film in French, useful for teaching French as a Second Language.)

1974, 22 min 10 s
