Adieu Philippine (French pronunciation: ​[a.djø fɪlɪpin], "Farewell, Philippine") is a 1962 French film directed by Jacques Rozier.[1] Although obscure and difficult to screen, it has been praised as one of the key films of the French New Wave.[2] It premiered at the 1962 Cannes Film Festival.[3]


Michel is a bored young man in Paris about to be sent to Algeria in the army. He works as a technician at a TV station. One day he meets two teenage girls, Juliette and Liliane, and begins dating them both separately. Eventually the girls find out and Michel goes on vacation to Corsica to escape them. The two girls follow him there and the three search for a film director who owes Michel money. Juliette and Liliane watch Michel sail away on a boat headed for Algeria.
