The screenplay for the 1976 Best Screenplay winner from the National Society of Film Critics. As a metaphor for the changing political climate in Europe in the late 60's, "Jonah..." is a story of a former political activist and his contemporaries learning to live with the materialism of their age. Max's involvement with a real estate deal, as well as Madeline's interest in Hinduism—in order to expand her sexual horizons—are a clear indication of the shift in modern thinking—from the idealistic to the practical.

Text: English, French (translation)Review:
"’Jonah’ is so ingeniously constricted that one can enjoy it in the way one enjoyed Renoir’s egalitarian films in the thirties.”
—Pauline Kael, The New Yorker
"My favorite film at the festival—in fact my favorite film this year. ‘Jonah’ presents beautiful realizations of the most joyous and sympathetic begins seen on the screen since the days of the great Marcel Pagnol classics.”
—Jonathan Cott, Rolling Stone
