1/9-12: Pasolini, Juliette Binoche, Blue is the Warmst Color & more!

01/07/14  |  Posted by Cinematheque  |  Posted in Cinematheque

ACCATTONE opens major Pasolini series Pier Paolo Pasolini's sympathy for Italy’s underclass and his preference for non-professional actors can be seen in ACCATTONE, the director's first film. Set in a squalid section of Rome, the movie focuses on an impoverished young ne’er-do-well (“accattone” or “scrounger’) who scrapes together a paltry living as a pimp and petty thief. Franco Citti (The Godfather) made his film debut in this 1961 Italian classic that will be shown on Saturday at 5:00 pm in a new 35mm print from Italy. The movie opens our 7-week, 15-program series "Pier Paolo Pasolini: Poet and Provocateur." Special admission is $12; Cinematheque members $9; age 25 & under $7; no passes, twofers, or radio winners.

Anna Magnani is MAMMA ROMA in touching Pasolini classic A middle-aged prostitute (the great Anna Magnani) tries to distance herself from her sordid past for the sake of her teenage son in Pier Paolo Pasolini's MAMMA ROMA, a moving 1962 drama that was originally banned in its native Italy. See it in a new 35mm print from Italy on Sunday at 3:30 pm. Special admission is $12; Cinematheque members $9; age 25 & under $7; no passes, twofers, or radio winners.

CAMILLE CLAUDEL 1915 stars Juliette Binoche as the troubled French sculptor who was once Rodin's model and lover Juliette Binoche is “mesmerizing” (Variety) in CAMILLE CLAUDEL 1915, the new film from France's Bruno Dumont, director of Humanité and Hadewijch. Binoche plays emotionally troubled French sculptor Camille Claudel, one-time model and lover of the more celebrated sculptor Auguste Rodin. Now confined to a mental institution, she tries to convince her doctor that she is sane, while waiting in hope for her poet brother, Paul Claudel. Film Comment says that this new movie is "possibly Dumont’s finest," which is saying a lot. Catch its exclusive Cleveland premiere on Thursday, Friday, or Saturday. Here's a clip from the film.

French love story BLUE IS THE WARMEST COLOR is one of 2013's very best Abdellatif Kechiche's French film BLUE IS THE WARMEST COLOR (a Golden Globe nominee for Best Foreign Language Film) is notorious now for its torrid lesbian sex scenes. But the 2013 Cannes Palme d'Or winner will be remembered in coming decades for its superlative performances and for its heartbreaking delineation of a young woman's quest for true love and sexual fulfillment. One of the very best films of 2013, this three-hour movie is both unmissable and unforgettable! No one under 18 will be admitted when it shows on Friday and Sunday. Watch the trailer here.

Amerindie drama I USED TO BE DARKER tells of Irish teen runaway in the U.S.
I USED TO BE DARKER is the third feature by the exceptionally talented young Maryland filmmaker Matthew Porterfield (Putty Hill). It tells of an Irish teen runaway who seeks refuge in Baltimore with her aunt and uncle, both musicians, only to discover that they are in the midst of a tense separation. Adèle Exarchopoulos, star of Blue Is the Warmest Color (see above), has a small role in this movie that premieres locally on Thursday and Saturday. Print this email and present it at the box office and see I Used To Be Darker for only $7 ($6 if you're a Cinematheque member). It's our Deal of the Week. Here's the trailer.

Once "banned forever," Jan Nemec's Czech classic A REPORT ON THE PARTY AND THE GUESTS is a must-see “Banned forever” by Czech authorities, Jan Nemec's allegorical 1966 Czech New Wave classic A REPORT ON THE PARTY AND THE GUESTS tells of an outdoor, sit-down dinner party that is rudely interrupted by a gang of mysterious thugs. This 1966 movie is "the most famous and certainly one of the most important masterpieces of the Czech film renaissance,” according to Amos Vogel in Film as a Subversive Art. See it Sunday at 5:40 pm in a 35mm print imported from the Czech National Film Archive in Prague. Special admission is $10; Cinematheque members $8; age 25 & under (and those who pay to see Mamma Roma at 3:30) $7; no passes, twofers, or radio winners.
