My Journey Through French Cinema

Documentary 3h 21m 2016

AroView: Bertrand Tavernier’s personal journey through French cinema, from films he enjoyed as a boy to his own early career, told through portraits of key creative figures. Featured are Jacques Becker, Jean-Pierre Melville, Claude Sautet, Francois Truffaut and Jean-Luc Godard, among others. A beautifully affectionate and highly intelligent portrait of French film making from the 1930’s to the 1980’s.

“A passionate, opinionated, drop-dead fascinating documentary essay about French film history put together by a clear-eyed enthusiast who was born to tell the tale.” ~Kenneth Turan, L.A. TIMES
