Grémillon in the Thirties

Little Lise

La Petite Lise
France | 1930 | Jean Grémillon

Little Lise

In the first sound film by the mostly unknown-and-unappreciated-in-America French master Jean Grémillon, a convict returns home from prison to discover that his daughter has turned to prostitution. Can he save her—and himself? This painterly movie with sparse dialogue “has the most impressive use of sound I know of,” according to film critic Fred Patton.

84 min. Subtitles.

Imported 35mm print from the Institut Français!

Special admission $10; Cinematheque members, CIA I.D. holders, and age 25 & under $8; no passes, twofers, or radio winners.
