REMORQUES & L’ÉTRANGE MONSIEUR VICTOR

REMORQUES

(1941, Jean Grémillon) Tugboat captain Jean Gabin has been happily married for ten years to ailing Madeleine Renaud – but she doesn’t love the sea. And then, amidst a harrowing rescue, Gabin meets the ship captain’s estranged wife: enigmatic Michèle Morgan. Approx. 91 min. 35mm.
1:00, 4:40, 8:20


“A remarkable, beautifully photographed film.”
– Georges Sadoul

When Morgan contemplates the dead starfish which Gabin has given her, it feels precisely like the last European movie of the 1930s.”
Time Out (London)

L’ÉTRANGE MONSIEUR VICTOR

(1938, Jean Grémillon) Prison escapee Pierre Blanchar, not sure he hasn’t committed murder, holes up with golden-hearted shopkeeper Raimu (The Baker’s Wife and “Fanny” trilogy) and his wife Madeleine Renaud. Only trouble is... Juicy combination of comedy and suspense in a Toulon teeming with life. Approx. 103 min. 35mm.
2:45, 6:25, 10:05

 

“None of the moral ambiguities are lost on Gremillon, who eschews the usual distinctions between heroes and villains to make this a troubling and offbeat melodrama.”
– Jonathan Rosenbaum
