THE LATE MATHIAS PASCAL
Monday, January 16
(1926, Marcel L’Herbier) Fleeing personal tragedy – and the mother-in-law from hell – Russian acting legend Ivan Mosjoukine unexpectedly wins a fortune at Monte Carlo, then learns he is presumed dead. A new life? Design tour de force for L’Herbier, who personally talked Pirandello into letting him film the novel. Featuring a very young Michel Simon (see Panique) in one of his earliest roles. DCP courtesy Flicker Alley. Approx. 170 min.
**with orchestral soundtrack; music composed by Timothy Brock
