A STUDIOCANAL release A fascinating voyage through French film history, from the 1930s through to the 70s Bertrand Tavernier is a filmmaker and life-long fan of cinema. In this very special documentary, which previewed athe 2016 BFI London Film Festival, he addresses us directly, speaking with infectious enthusiasm about the films, actors, directors, composers, writers and cinematographers who have meant so much to him, and who played such a significant role in French film history. From Renoir and Chabrol through to Melville and Becker, every frame of this journey exudes passion. Tavernier’s commentary is also augmented by rare behind-thescenes footage and treats, such as the audio recording of a ferocious argument between Jean-Paul Belmondo and Melville.
