FRA | 1960 | dir. Henri-Georges Clouzot, with Brigitte Bardot, Sami Frey

Dominique Marceau (Brigitte Bardot) is on trial for the murder of her lover Gilbert Tellier (Sami Frey). As the hearings go on, the accused’s character comes to light. In this feature, winner of the 1961 Golden Globe for Best Foreign Film, Henri-Georges Clouzot depicts a puritanical and hypocritical society that shows no compassion for the monsters it creates. The result is a film of remarkable precision and ruthless irony in which Brigitte Bardot gives the performance of a lifetime.

The screening on 28 Aug at 6.40pm will be introduced by Prof. Ginette Vincendeau, King’s College London
