Femmes femmes
Paul Vecchiali, 1974
France | French | Format: 35mm | 115 minutes

Part of THE CINEMA ACCORDING TO SERGE BOZON.

Bozon spins vinyl in the Furman Gallery after the 8:30pm screening on Friday, April 15! Complimentary beer & wine will be served. [We Card: You must be 21+ to be served alcoholic berverages.]

The best film of the best decade of French cinema (the Seventies). Vecchiali would object, because he’s the champion of the French cinema of the Thirties and just published an exhaustive and very personal book (2000 pages!) about it. Pasolini loved Femmes femmes so much that he asked the two actresses (Sonia Savange and Hélène Surgère) to re-play a scene in Salò. As a producer, Vecchiali also discovered Jean-Claude Biette, Marie-Claude Treilhou, Jean-Claude Guiguet, Jacques Davila, et al. We defended all these underestimated directors in the Lettre du Cinéma. If we’re making movies now, it’s—one way or the other—thanks to Paul Vecchiali.
