A JOURNEY THROUGH FRENCH CINEMA

 VOYAGE À TRAVERS LE CINÉMA FRANÇAIS

FRANCE • DOCUMENTARY • 191 MINS • 2015 • PG
Directed by: BERTRAND TAVERNIER
Embark on an inspirational cinematic experience with veteran writer-director Bertrand Tavernier’s sprawling and deeply personal epic voyage through French cinema. Tavernier masterfully explores the auteurs from the 1930s up to his own first breakout feature in 1974, The Clockmaker of St. Paul.

Included in the analysis are the contributions of directors such as Jacques Becker and François Truffaut and actors such as Jean Renoir and Jean Gabin balanced with those of lesser known French filmmakers who have also illuminated emotions and revealed surprising truths. Hundreds of clips comprise this magnificent tribute to French filmmakers, scriptwriters, actors, and musicians with rare and behind the-scenes insights that are eye-opening, scandalous and funny.

Tavernier’s revelatory dissection draws a reference line to the influences of American cinema at the time. Through this comparison, he celebrates the quintessence of French filmmaking – the extraordinary style, uninhibited morals and graceful pessimism that have made it one of the strongest cinema industries of today. This is essential viewing for all lovers of French film, and cinema itself.
