This didn't place very well at eurovision in 1966, and there is specific criticism of it on the Michele Torr Wiki page, but it's still pretty enjoyable:

ESC 1966 04 - Luxembourg - Michèle Torr - Ce Soir Je T'Attendais

video by JoaoVelada

--In '94, I held a sign while attempting to hitchhike out of Calais, France (as I'd done in '84), only this time the sign read "LUXEMBOURG" since that was the destination as my brother was living there. It was following/during a torrential downpour; the entire ferry system/port was shut down for three days. I'd been stranded there after taking the ferry over from Dover, England.

Looks like there was splicing or something around :50-1:10 in the video "60's - MICHELE TORR - S'il m'aime -"

--the young people sitting behind Michele Torr are moving around, getting situated at one moment, then the next shot shows them sitting completely still--it doesn't seem to follow. Love the video though--Michele Torr's voice sounds very melodic.

This video version is better as it shows the intro. including Michele Torre being led down the stairs to the stage...Isabelle Aubret also has an excellent intro. in her Eurovision perfo4rmance around that time.

Compare:

with...

"60's - MICHELE TORR - S'il m'aime -"

video By DeeJay62 DeeJayM62

--Seems they were both around 1965 or so; expressive facial expressions; very enjoyable.

Just viewed that Godard film clip again. Anna Karina is interesting, but the scene is much like other Godard film clips I don't grasp. Even after reading the comments under the video. Here's one comment that may or may not be accurate:

Look at the scene more closely: The gravitas comes from the mention of four or five philosophers, that they are mentioned by an older gentleman who describes himself as being a "writer", he's smoking a cigarette, he speaks with assurance. Therefore, the viewer is bamboozled into thinking there was real substance. Perhaps that's the genius of the scene. It exposes how shallow we can be.

Kind of like "existentialism"; there are numerous definitions of the term.
