"Benjamin was a role that I really liked," said Deneuve later. "It was a comedy, but in the spirit and tone particular."

    Filming began in June 1967. The day before, Catherine Deneuve's sister and fellow actress Françoise Dorléac had died in a car accident.

    "It is a painful time in my life," she later recalled. "I was in a cloud. I shot like a misty PLC. Fortunately, grief did not score the film."

    Box Office

    The film was the eleventh most popular movie at the French box office in 1968.

    Critical response

    The critic for The Guardian claimed that "the dialogue is stylish without being witty and it is continuously and tiresomely arch." The Los Angeles Times said the film was "as superlatively acted as it is photographed and scored". The Washington Post said the film "has little to be said for it except is evidently authentic chateux".

    Pauline Kael wrote that Pierre Clementi "indicates adolescent innocence by being loose-limbed and girlish. It is essential for the boy to suggest the kind of man he will become once he has learned what everyone is so eager to teach him, but Clémenti looks as though he would become a lesbian."
