This Sweet Sickness Film Poster


Screening as part of our Patricia Highsmith Season. Highsmith’s seventh novel This Sweet Sickness was first adapted for TV as part of The Alfred Hitchcock Hour in 1962. Fifteen years later came the first film version by director Claude Miller (Garde à Vue, The Little Thief). It features a boyish Gérard Depardieu – still fresh from acting opposite Robert De Niro in Bernardo Bertolucci’s 1900 – as David, an accountant hopelessly obsessed with a woman he has carried a torch for since his youth but who’s now married to another man.
