My Journey Through French Cinema

Synopsis

From the celebrated director of A Sunday in the Country comes this loving tribute to the history of Gallic film. While Truffaut and Godard get their due, Bertrand Tavernier’s exquisitely edited montage focuses more on his own personal “movie godfathers” (Jean-Pierre Melville, Claude Sautet) and other kinsman in craft (Jacques Becker, Marcel Carné). A masterclass in the art of the moving image, this impassioned compendium of French classics is also an ode to the universal power of cinema.
