A Godard retrospective in collaboration with Chanel at the Cinémathèque

La Nouvelle Vague is chic and the cine club spirit is regaining an unexpected breath of glamor . The proof: the Godard retrospective appears as the event of the new school year with the complicity of Chanel and friends of the house. Just that !

Parisian chic intellectuals and arty girls are therefore on a war footing to rush into this temple of Parisian 7th art that is the Cinémathèque in the 12th district. The first session, last Wednesday, brought together all that Paris has prominent personalities, and inaugurated this exceptional couture cycle with The oldest profession in the world , a tribute to Anna Karina , headlining the film.

A more contemporary aesthetic than ever

Revolutionary director, figure of the New Wave, Jean-Luc Godard is the pope of contemporary French auteur cinema ( Delerm , Desplechin and Garrel clearly claim this) and the bearer of an aesthetic embodied by the icons of the 70's ( Anna Karina , Jean Seberg , Brigitte Bardot or Isabelle Huppert ) more up to date than ever, inspiring young Parisian muses, starting with Jeanne Damas

Projects and meetings

On the program: all the director's cult films, to see and re-watch. Starting with Bande à Part with Sami Frey, Anna Karina and Claude Brasseur, two young thugs and a young girl who try to steal the money stolen from the tax authorities by the latter's uncle.

Another wonderful revival: À bout de Souffle , a love story between a thug played by Jean-Paul Belmondo and an American camped by Jean Seberg or even Contempt with Bardot and Piccoli in Capri.

To go further: meetings and conferences such as the session with Nathalie Baye to present Sauve qui peut with Jacques Dutronc and Isabelle Huppert .

Another highlight: A married woman , presented by Macha Méril herself. Main role of the film, she plays an adulterous fashion editor, as Godard tells it: " This is the story of a woman, her very particular story for a very short time, exactly 24 hours. This film begins with a kiss. : the one that Charlotte and a man exchange one afternoon in a furnished apartment in an anonymous neighborhood. He is an actor. She, a female editor in a fashion magazine. " Sunday January 12 at 6.30 p.m.
