Tributes - Retrospectives - Cinema on cinema
| 193 minutes | 2015
Bertrand Tavernier’s documentary is an expression of gratitude to all the filmmakers, screenwriters, actors and musicians he’s encountered in his life. If memory is a balm, this film is a particularly soothing one. Voyage à travers le cinéma français is a heartfelt ode to directors like Becker, Renoir, Chabrol and Godard, and actors and musicians like Gabin, Jaubert and Constantine, who, in the space of a film or a scene, manage to illuminate an emotion or unearth surprising truths, and who have fired the imagination of people from so many generations, starting with Tavernier himself.
