Cézanne © Belva Film GmbH
Drawing from Joachim Gasquet’s 1921 memoir of Paul Cézanne, both films pay a tribute to the French master Huillet and Straub greatly admired. Excerpts from the memoir are shown with Cézanne’s work, scenes from Jean Renoir’s Madame Bovary, and images of Mont Sainte-Victoire. A Visit to the Louvre refers to the painter’s discussion of paintings by Ingres, Delacroix, Courbet, and others. Two of the greatest films ever made on the subject of painting.
