The Pialat exhibition at the Cinémathèque

Movie lover fans! Maurice Pialat has taken over the Cinémathèque by storm with his retrospective. From his letters of excuses to Anconina to his film extracts such as « Polisse » with Sophie Marceau, Depardieu and Anconina.

This fascinating exhibition retraces the life of a big wig of the French cinema who was always faithful to Depardieu, put Sandrine Bonnaire on the front page, and also turned out to be a real monster, with his impossible character and special methods... Quick catch-up session for those who might have bypassed Claude Berri’s enemy, his biggest hits can be discovered on the  screen.

We like : the crusty anecdotes of this tormented movie maker.

We also like : a selection of 8 films featured at MK2 Bibliothèque, all the info here
