Announcing a new Meetup for The West Hartford Groupe de French!

What: French film at Cinestudio

When: Sunday, February 7,[masked]:30 PM

Trinity College
Hartford, CT 06103

Never released in the US, a Hartford Premiere! Jean-Paul Belmondo stars in
this 1961 Nouvelle vague film directed by Jean-Pierre Melville with director of photography Henri Cecae (also of Les 400 coups)

(France, 1961) Written and directed by Jean-Pierre Melville, based on the novel by B?atrix Beck. Director of photography, Henri Deca?. Cast: Emmanuelle Riva, Jean-Paul Belmondo, Irene Tunc, Nicole Mirel. Every so often moviegoers get the chance to see a great film by a major director that was never released in the States. The cinematic surprise of this season is the new release of a 1961 film starring Jean-Paul Belmondo (Breathless) and Emmanuelle Riva (Hiroshima Mon Amour), complete with newly translated subtitles. Director Jean-Pierre Melville made L?on Morin Pr?tre in between Bob Le Flambeur and Army of Shadows, and it is an evocative story of a woman who is a Jewish communist in Nazi-occupied France, based on the novel by B?atrix Beck. Her attempts to find solace with a (gorgeous) man who happens to be a local priest is a masterpiece that can now be added to the glories of the French New Wave. "...a fascinating, unexpected movie that fans of French film in general, and Melville in particular, will not want to miss!" - Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times. 117 min

Ticet prices are $8; $7 for students, educators,seniors, and French group members
