Classics, Festivals & Series
In the context of our Sunday French Classics: 120 Years of Cinema Season, this ultimate classic was picked by Natacha, a member of staff at the Institut français.
“Je m’appelle Garance. C’est l’nom d’une fleur”
Arletty, sublime and evasive flower, makes hearts beat as well as the tempo of the film, marvelously crafted by an unmatched duo of poets: Marcel Carné et Jacques Prévert. One of the best films ever.
Natacha, Head of Marketing and PR at the Institut francais du Royaume-Uni
In the Parisian theatre world of the early 19th century, the fates of four men – a brilliant mime artist, a great romantic actor, an aristocrat and a ruthless master criminal – are intertwined. All four love and are loved – at least for a time – by the beautiful, free-spirited Garance. Widely considered to be one of the greatest films ever made, its spectacular magic can be fully appreciated on the big screen.
