Close-Up celebrates the remarkable career Jeanne Moreau,by screening three of her films from the 1960s; the decade in which she established herself as an international screen name

Over her remarkable career Jeanne Moreau has worked with many of cinema’s most important directors (Louis Malle, Francois Truffaut, Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Joseph Losey, Jacques Demy among others), including Orson Welles who described her as "the greatest actress in the world". Close-Up presents three of her films from the 1960s, the decade in which she established herself as an international screen name with films such as Jules Et Jim, Bay Of Angels and The Trial.


MADEMOISELLE
Directed by Tony Richardson
1966 | France | 99 mins | B&W


Moreau plays a school mistress, a respected figure in her fishing village home, where she is known as Mademoiselle. Neglected and lonely, she vents her frustration through sociopathic acts of vandalism and destruction, for which an Italian woodchopper (Ettoire Manni), lusted after by the women and hated by the men, is forced to shoulder the blame.
