THE CLOCKMAKER OF ST. PAUL
(L’HORLOGER DE SAINT PAUL,)
1974, Joseph Green Pictures, 105 min, France, Dir: Bertrand Tavernier

In Bertrand Tavernier’s directorial debut, the actor who would come to be known as his “alter ego,” Philippe Noiret, stars as a father in silent denial of his son’s criminal activity, which ranges from destructive to heinous. A clear-eyed critique of the moral corrosion that lurks under - and is fed by - the bourgeois lifestyle. In French with English subtitles.
