Any Fans of 1930s French Cinema


#1

I love films like ‘Pepe Le Moko’, ‘Le Jour Se Levre’, ‘A Nous A Liberte’, ‘Zero De Conduite’, ‘L’Atalante’ and ‘La Grande Illusion’ amongst other fine French works of the 1930s. The cinematography and humanity in 1930s French movies are exquisite. Directors like Rene Clair, Jean Renoir, Marcel Carne and especially Jean Vigo (who sadly died at the age of 29) are all great directors. I recommend that any cineast should watch the movies by these great filmmakers. There is more to French Cinema than Godard, Truffaut, Chabrol, Besson and Jeneut.

yeah, ive got plenty of Renoir, all burned, though, his shit is hard to find here, but hes incredible



La Grande illusion, obviously, how can you Not like that film, it’s one of the greats, La Règle du Jeu, one of my favorites aswell

Les Crime de Monsieur Lange! i visited the town where most of it is shot, just a 3 hour drive from my house



you can really see how these films influenced modern day directors, had a major impact
