FRA | 1960 | dir. Louis Malle, with Catherine Demongeot, Philippe Noiret, Hubert Deschamps, Annie Fratellini

The most freewheeling of New Wave films takes Raymond Queneau’s unfilmable novel about a foulmouthed 11-year-old girl visiting her uncle in Paris, and finds the cinematic equivalent of the author’s punning style in an orgy of outrageous sight gags, in-jokes, film parodies and visual games. Zazie dans le Métro is a merry farce depicting a satirical view of the French society in the early 60’s.

Introduced by Ginette Vincendeau, Professor in Film Studies at King’s College London

Double bill: talk Unravelling French Cinema at 7pm + screening of Zazie dans le Métro: £15, conc. £13
