France | 1963 | Chris Marker, Pierre Lhomme
Here's a new, 50th-anniversary restoration of Chris (La Jetée) Marker's landmark essay film, a snapshot of Paris during the spring of 1962, after the end of the Algerian War. Marker and cameraman Pierre Lhomme cull 55 hours of interviews with Parisians (talking about both their personal lives and politics) into a witty two-and-a-half hour choral city symphony with interstitial narration spoken by Simone Signoret. Music by Michel Legrand. "Simultaneously illuminating and funny." -Time Out London.
145 min. Cleveland revival premiere. Subtitles. Blu-ray.
