Capital Celluloid 2024 — Day 193: Sun Jul 14

Wild Target (Salvadori, 1993): Cinema Museum, 2pm

This film in the season of French Sundaes at the Cinema Museum is a 35mm presentation.

Cinema Museum introduction:
A brilliant dark comedy to conclude our French Sundaes season. Great performances and a sparkling script gives you an insight into paid assassins you would never expect.

“Anchoring the film is another of (Jean) Rochefort’s superb portrayals of the haut bourgeois whose very inscrutability and repression engender sympathy and amusement in equal portion. As his dignity is eroded in a knockabout farce around the streets of Paris, his emotions begin to unbutton” (Time Out).

Each film is accompanied by an introductory illustrated talk by Jon Davies, Tutor in French Cinema at Morley College.
