Tribute to Jeanne Moreau
in French with EN subtitles
FRA | 1974 | dir. Bertrand Blier, with Gérard Depardieu, Miou-Miou, Patrick Dewaere, Jeanne Moreau
Les Valseuses features Gérard Depardieu and Patrick Dewaere as a pair of sociopaths wending their way across France. The two men break into houses, but largely as a prelude to seducing and exploiting women. Actresses Miou-Miou, Jeanne Moreau and Isabelle Huppert join the dance in Blier’s powerful satire of social and sexual mores.
Followed by a Q&A hosted by BBC Radio broadcaster Kevin Le Gendre in discussion with jazz guitarist John Etheridge and Jazzwise writer Selwyn Harris and a concert with John Etheridge at Café Aubaine.
