Rapture (French: ''La fleur de l'âge'') is a 1965 French/American film directed by John Guillermin, and starring Melvyn Douglas, Patricia Gozzi, and Dean Stockwell.


Agnes, a lonely teenage girl, and her father befriend an escaped convict, named Joseph, who arrives at their farmhouse in Brittany, France. When Joseph develops an attraction to Agnes, her father threatens to break up the union[1]


Time magazine called it a "penumbral play of love against loneliness" that "boost[s] the artistic stock of English director John Guillermin" and "clinch[es] the reputation of France's 15-year-old Patricia Gozzi."[2]
