Our choice for the August French movie is Cléo de 5 à 7 by Agnès Varda
The 1961 film that propelled her onto the Nouvelle Vague scene. It follows a young woman’s walk around town as she waits for the results of a biopsy; her encounters with family, friends and strangers, including a clairvoyant. Agnès Varda’s usual humane and compassionate approach to her characters illuminates the movie as she explores the shifting emotions and muted anxiety of her main character.
1h30 – English subtitled – Suitable for all audiences -
Our August world film is Sansho Dayu (Sansho the Bailiff) by Kenji Mizoguchi
Sansho Dayu (Sansho the Bailiff) a 1954 film by the great Japanese director Kenji Mizoguchi, relating the tragic fate of a family driven by poverty into prostitution and slavery by unscrupulous characters in Japan’s 11th century. In this stark and austere film Mizoguchi explores yet again his perennial concern about the condition of women; a theme that makes him a surprisingly relevant artist today.
English subtitles – Suitable for audiences over 15 – 2h12
