Le Feu follet (Malle)

Le Feu follet

Louis Malle

Pitiless portrait of a thirty-something alcoholic consumed by existential angst. Adapted from Drieu La Rochelle’s novel, this is a pessimistic and extremely sparse film, with Maurice Ronet’s extraordinary performance and the melancholy of Erik Satie’s Gymnopédies.

Flagey, Cinematek
