    THE RISE AND FALL OF A SMALL FILM COMPANY

    Jean-Luc Godard Switzerland, 1986

    THE YOUNG LIEUTENANT

    À TOUT DE SUITE

    Benoît Jacquot France, 2004

    The third of a very fruitful on-going collaboration between French director Benoît Jacquot and young actress (and great director in her own right) Isild Le Besco, this gorgeous black and white paean to a post-New Wave era is an excited and poetic exploration of a youthful, searching free spirit.

    THE GUARDIANS

    Xavier Beauvois France, 2017

    Xavier Beauvois’ vivid WWI drama is a fiercely compassionate portrayal of the quiet toll of war on the home front. Caroline Champetier’s (Annette) lush cinematography, reminiscent of paintings by Monet and Renoir, imbues the French countryside with a melancholy that pulses beneath the surface.
