Four French Films: Echoes of Proust

February 27, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Four French Films: Echoes of Proust
When the first volume of Proust’s In Search of Lost Time appeared in 1913, it created a sensation. A new way of expressing the mysteries of human emotion had been discovered. These four films, each in its own way, visualize intertwining dramas of complex interior lives. The film will be followed by discussion and refreshments.
Les Dames du Bois de Boulogne
In Robert Bresson’s second feature film, based on a novelette by Denis Diderot and with dialogue written by Jean Cocteau, the director is already forging his singularly brilliant filmmaking, creating a moving study of the power of revenge and the strength of true love. (1945, 85 min.)
