THE BOORS BY CARLO GOLDONI // 120' - 2016

Recorded on the 22nd and 23rd December 2015 at the Théâtre du Vieux-Colombier, with the members of the Comédie Française.

Goldoni’s theatre is the theatre of life: we feel life passing by, the daily events, common sense, the contingencies of existence... Goldoni acquired an intimate knowledge of men and women’s lives, a taste for reality, a temperance and empathy that he feeds back into the theatre to share generously with the audience, to make us laugh at its peculiarities and...

CROMWELL, OR THE CONSPIRATORS (VICTOR HUGO) // 104' - 2014

The Western comes to 17th century England in the form of a disjointed, modern and unexpected adaptation of a rarely performed Victor Hugo play.
London. Between the sumptuous Westminster Palace, freshly usurped from King Charles I by the regicide Cromwell, and the sinister Three Cranes Tavern, a group of conspirators hatch a plot. The conspiracy unites Royalists and Republicans against Cromwell, the Lord Protector of England: some resent him for executing Charles I. Others can’t admit...

LA CLÔTURE DE L'AMOUR // 90' - 2014

Stan and Audrey split up. What was once beautiful and moving becomes ugly and tense, mean and petty.
The poet and choreographer Pascal Rambert creates a masterful vision of separation. A mental dance, Clôture de l’amour, performed in Moscow, Tokyo, New York, Germany, Italy and Zagreb, lit up the Avignon Festival in 2011.
Two artists, in a rehearsal room lit by strip lights, throw and receive words like missiles. Two bodies held in tension, with no mercy, no negotiation, Stan and...

DEVOS / DREYFUS: TRIBUTES WITHOUT BOUNDARIES // 80' - 2013

Jean-Claude Dreyfus pays tribute to Raymond Devos. His little pied-à-terre in the imagination is the ideal bistro in which to discourse about everything and nothing, especially nothing.

INSIDE THE RING: THE CADRE NOIR SET TO MUSIC // 85' - 2013

In this highly prestigious equestrian show, the Cadre Noir of Saumur, accompanied by the Paris Instrumental Ensemble, present us with a display of French horsemanship at its very finest.
Composed of 15 “tableaux”, in which the quintessence of equestrian art is combined with the works of great composers (Tchaikovsky, Brahms, Bizet, Richard Strauss, Britten and Bartok), the film succeeds in creating an emotional whirlwind, culminating in the melodic inebriation of Astor Piazzola’s...

JOY OF MAN'S DESIRING // 95' - 2012

A show written and performed by Alexandre Astier.
“This class is open to everyone and no musical knowledge is required”. After Kaamelott, Alexandre Astier becomes Johann Sebastian Bach. At last, in 2012, the composer is giving a master class. But he might slip up. “Que ma joie demeure!”, a delightful and ramshackle homage to Bach, merrily lifts the lid on the composer’s music as one opens the bonnet of a car to understand its engine.
