Film Details

Pierre Étaix: The Lost Laugh

Le Grand Amour (The Great Love)

France | 1969 | Pierre Étaix

Le Grand Amour (The Great Love)

In this whimsical, delightful 1960s French comedy that wasn’t released in the U.S. until last year, rediscovered comedian Pierre Étaix plays a married, middle-aged businessman who falls for his barely legal new secretary and starts fantasizing endlessly about her. Full of sight gags, this is “Étaix’s last, most cohesive, and greatest feature” (Film Forum, NYC). Étaix’s wife in the film is played by Annie Fratellini, France’s first female circus clown and Mrs. Étaix in real life.

Cleveland premiere. Subtitles. 87 min. Preceded at showtime by Étaix’s 15-min. comedy of errors Happy Anniversary (Heureux Anniversaire, 1962), which won the 1963 Oscar for Best Live Action Short Subject and was co-directed by Étaix’s regular collaborator, the legendary scriptwriter Jean-Claude Carrière, who also wrote for Buñuel. New 35mm Color Print!
