An Evening With Patrice Leconte!

   French director Patrice Leconte, who began making amateur films at age 15, is recognizable for his versatility. Until "Tandem", he was a light hearted filmmaker, inviting the public to smile at those maladjusted people who were taking the initiative to laugh at their own loneliness in order to avoid the idea of death. He had a number of major successes with comedy films, and first came to international attention with "Monsieur Hire", which was shown at the 1989 Cannes Film Festival and which was a radical departure from his previous work. Thus, he magnificently proves that he can also handle drama. Since then, he has alternated between films such as "Ridicule" and "L'homme du train" which have had success in the international art house market. His characters are usually fragile and vulnerable, walled up in loneliness, while flirting with allegory, and melancholic, melodramatic fantasy.

   La Maison Française is honored to welcome Patrice Leconte for its November Cinémathèque, where he will present two of his own movies : Dogora and Voir la mer
