The film commences with a young man accosting Chahine on the street.Chahine remarks that the work seems inappropriate for someone with a university degree. The film immediately segues to documentary, with a cluster of men from various parts of the country, all with families to feed, forced to migrate to the capital in search of day labor. Eventually Chahine arrives at his studio, and the premise of this short: French television wants a film on Cairo. In addition to Malle's work, Deuxieme Rencontre includes films by such cinematic giants as Jean-Luc Godard, Jean Eustache and Robert Bresson, along with Anglophone figures like Francis Ford Coppola and Richard Attenborough.Like many works of the Nouvelle Vague (with which Malle is somewhat ambivalently associated) "Atlantic City" does seem dated. Like Lou and Grace, however, the film is beautifully dated. Malle was as smitten by American Film Noire as his colleagues in the Nouvelle Vague.
