Sunday, October 7 3:30*
Monday, October 8 12:30

(1966, Alain Resnais) Spanish Communist operative Yves Montand barely gets through his identity check at the French border (a trip that flash-backs and –forwards make clear he’s made many times before), then, back in Paris, finds it hard to go through the motions of intrigue, even as he dallies with Geneviève Bujold and Ingrid Thulin. Semprún was Oscar-nominated for his screenplay. 35mm. Approx. 141 min.

Reviews

“The film’s depiction of a man maintaining faith in his ideals, despite the reality around him, makes this one of Resnais’ most satisfying films.”
– Georges Sadoul

“The filmmaker’s triumphant technique in blending past, present and future joins with his brilliant consideration of the revolutionary surviving beyond his passion.”
– Judith Christ, Ask Me No Questions and I’ll Tell You…

The Sorrow and the Pity of Spain.”
