From one of the most prolific New Wave filmmakers, Un Homme et une Femme may be a simple story, but nevertheless, artistically self-conscious - it'll melt the hearts of the romantically inclined.


Un Homme et une femme (A man and a Woman) (1966) is the quintessential French romance that won its maker, Claude Lelouch, an Oscar and had everyone humming Daaaa Daaaa Daaaa dadidadida daaa daaa daaa dadidadida.


From Rotten Tomatoes: Jean-Louis (Jean-Louis Trintignant) is a widower who has become a single father after his wife's suicide, and Anne (Anouk Aimée) is a widow and single mother still reeling from the accidental death of her husband. When the two cross paths at their children's boarding school, both are wary, but they soon form a friendship that is quickly charged with romance. Yet the pair continue to struggle to overcome their past tragedies as they try to begin a new relationship.

 

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

Doors open at 13.30, for a 14.30 start.

Refreshments will be available at the licensed cafe/bar.
