FRENCH FAVORITES FOR BASTILLE DAY
Jean-Luc Godard Double Feature!
PIERROT LE FOU / CONTEMPT
Co-presented by the French Film and TV office, French Consulate in Los Angeles
PIERROT LE FOU
1965, Rialto Films, 110 min, France, Italy, Dir: Jean-Luc Godard

Jean-Paul Belmondo, fed up with his wife and Paris, heads for the South of France with old flame Anna Karina, a classic pulp-fiction moll of a gang of crooks. Essential ’60s Godard, with sun-splashed color and CinemaScope photography by Raoul Coutard, a cameo by tough-guy director Sam Fuller and an explosive finale. "The most ravishing and romantic film ever made. ... The dazzling mise-en-scene alternates Lichtenstein with Cezanne, pop art with Impressionism, the shadow of Amerika falling across the Provençal sun." - Amy Taubin, Village Voice. In French with English subtitles.


CONTEMPT
LE MEPRIS
1963, Rialto Pictures, 103 min, Dir: Jean-Luc Godard

The brilliantly vivid color palette is almost as ravishing as Brigitte Bardot in this masterpiece by Jean-Luc Godard. Bardot plays Camille, a woman whose marriage to her screenwriter husband comes to a swift, inevitable end over the course of a day on the Isle of Capri. With a score of aching beauty by Georges Delerue. In French with English subtitles.
