Capital Celluloid 2015 - Day 1: Thu Jan 1

Le Signe du lion (Rohmer, 1956): BFI Southbank, NFT1, 5.50pm


This film, also being shown on 6 January, screens as part of the Eric Rohmer season at BFI Southbank. Full details here.

BFI Southbank preview:
Rohmer’s earliest extant feature still feels remarkably raw and modern as he blends fiction with documentary footage of Paris in summer, through which his feckless hero treks in search of money to survive on after taking a legacy for granted. A caustic cautionary tale, laced with dark ironies, sharp insights and appearances by Resnais, Melville and (most memorably) Godard.

Here (and above) is the trailer.
