Episode 32: The Man Who Had His Hair Cut Short (1965)

Based on the novel of the same name by Johan Daisne, Andre Delvaux's The Man Who Had His Hair Cut Short (1965) is quite possibly Belgium's most critically acclaimed film.  the first of Delvaux's short directorial career, it's a story of obsession, anxiety, and loneliness, all couched in the facade of a psychological thriller.

Delvaux would go on to make a handful of films (including Un soir, un train [1968], also based on a book by Daisne) until the late 1980's, although none would bring him as much acclaim as The Man Who Had His Hair Cut Short.  He died in 2002.
