11/27-29: W.c. Fields, Jacques Tati, Army Of Crime And More!

11/23/10  |  Posted by Cinematheque  |  Posted in Cinematheque

Outcasts fight Nazis in epic French Resistance drama THE ARMY OF CRIME Robert Guédiguian's 2009 French film THE ARMY OF CRIME is a sweeping French Resistance drama based on true events. In it, a real-life "army" of foreigners-non-French Jews, anti-fascist Italians, Republican veterans of the Spanish Civil War, poets, communists, et al.-fight against the Nazis occupying Paris during WWII. Marseille-based Guédiguian (MARIUS AND JEANNETTE, THE TOWN IS QUIET) pays tribute to a group of valiant immigrants who were willing to die "not for the miserable France of that moment, but for the vision of what it could be" (The Village Voice). With Simon Abkarian and Virginie Ledoyen (pictured above). The New York Times named THE ARMY OF CRIME a "Critics' Pick." You can read the whole NYT review here (though it contains spoilers), and/or watch the theatrical trailer watch the theatrical trailer. The movie plays on Saturday and Sunday. Peruvian Indians fight pollution high in the Andes in gripping, scenic ALTIPLANO In ALTIPLANO, a 2009 Belgian-German-Dutch coproduction directed by Peter Brosens and Jessica Woodworth (KHADAK), a burnt-out Belgian photojournalist and her surgeon husband, both living in the Peruvian Andes, get caught up in a local revolt against the owners of a silver mine. Pollution from the mine is killing villagers and contaminating the environment. This beautifully-photographed "global village" drama depicts a solidarity that crosses culture and class. Olivier Gourmet stars in the film which The New York Times calls "a spiritual tale of ecological exploitation." Watch the trailer , then catch the whole movie on Sunday or Monday. Print this email and present it at the box office and see ALTIPLANO for only $6 ($5 if you're a Cinematheque member). It's our Deal of the Week! (Limit two discount admissions per print-out) Pianist David Drazin to accompany W.C. Fields silent comedy SO'S YOUR OLD MAN On Saturday and Sunday David Drazin , staff accompanist at the Gene Siskel Film Center in Chicago, will provide live piano accompaniment to Gregory La Cava's SO'S YOUR OLD MAN , a little-known silent comedy starring the great W.C. Fields.

Hulot plays three different roles in JACQUES TATI SHORT FILMS Jacques Tati's genius for physical comedy is well seen in the program JACQUES TATI SHORT FILMS , showing Saturday night only.

Hulot stars in the three comedies that will be shown, two of which he also directed or co-directed. the program includes: Tati and Jacques Berr's "Gai dimanche" (1935), in which Tati is a destitute man who gives tours in a rickety bus; René Clément's "Soigne ton gauche" (1936, 13 min.), in which Tati is a farmer who becomes a boxer; and Tati's "The School for Postmen" ("L'école des facteurs," 1947), a warm-up for his first feature JOUR DE FETE.
