Capital Celluloid 2014 - Day 264: Mon Sep 22

Le Grand Meaulnes (Albicocco, 1967): Cine Lumiere, 2pm


This screening, which is introduced by the novelist Julie Myerson, is part of the Scalarama season which runs throughout September. Full details here.

Time Out review:
A film made with vaseline and railway tracks, which takes some adjusting to; but you soon forget to read the subtitles, because you can understand all you need without them. It's based on the book Le Grand Meaulnes by Alain-Fournier, and explores a strange adolescence in provincial France at the end of the last century. In the film, Roger Corman meets Proust, Elvira Madigan rides again, and Renoir takes acid.
