(1974, Alain Resnais) Real-life saga of con man Serge Stavisky, whose rise to French moguldom, and scandalous 1934 fall, nearly brought France to civil war. Resnais’ most straightforward work, with three generations of Gallic superstars — Jean-Paul Belmondo as Stavisky, Charles Boyer (Best Actor, Cannes), and cameoing Gerard Depardieu — plus a score by Stephen Sondheim. Approx. 120 min. 35mm print courtesy French Cultural Services.
