Miami Premiere Engagement!


Documentary by BERTRAND TAVERNIER/2017/France/195mins.

Writer-director Bertrand Tavernier is truly one of the grand auteurs of the movies. His experience is vast, his knowledge is voluminous, his love is inexhaustible and his perspective is matched only by that of Martin Scorsese. This magnificent, epic documentary has been a lifetime in the making. Tavernier knows his native cinema inside and out, from the giants like Renoir, Godard, and Melville (for whom he worked as an assistant) to now overlooked and forgotten figures like Edmund T. Gréville and Guy Gilles, and his observations and reminiscences are never less than penetrating and always deeply personal. (In French with English subtitles).

OFFICIAL SELECTION: Cannes Classics 2017

“IT’S A LOVE LETTER STRAIGHT FROM THE HEART to the films, actors, directors, composers, writers and cinematographers who have played such a significant role in French film history”-Screen Daily

“Tavernier was on the set of Contempt the day that producer Carlo Ponti demanded Brigitte Bardot appear nude, and he was the one who brought Samuel Fuller to the set of Pierrot Le Fou…When someone with this level of insight and a vast trove of material wants to share, I can hardly fault anyone for wanting to sit at his feet to listen. And watch.”-Jordan Hoffman, Village Voice
