Spoiled Children (Tavernier, 1977): BFI Southbank, NFT2, 6.10pm

This film, which also screens on June 12th, is part of the Michel Piccoli season at BFI Southbank. Yoiu can find all the details here.

Time Out review:
Only partly autobiographical, this account of a film director's brief affair with a young neighbour, and his involvement in the social and political ramifications of a tenancy dispute in an apartment block, still carries the weight of Tavernier's convictions about the injustices everyone (including film-makers) is forced to contest, domestically and at work. A striking performance from Christine Pascal and the familiar leonine one from Michel Piccoli. More 'parochial' than most Tavernier, but worth catching up with.
