Cinéma : Lumière d’été

Wednesday 1 May 2019 18:45-20:45

Our cinéma programme for Institut members is back in full force, screening a new film every Wednesday at 2:00pm and 6:45pm. These events are free, but for members only. We invite you to book early and if you are not yet a member of the Institut français d’Ecosse, we invite you to join. Our film this week is Lumière d’été by Jean Grémillon (1943, 1h52min).
Watch a quick extract HERE.

A shimmering glass hotel at the top of a remote Provençal mountain provides the setting for a tragicomic tapestry about an obsessive love pentangle, whose principals range from an artist to a hotel manager to a dam worker. Scripted by Jacques Prévert and Pierre Laroche, the film was banned from theaters for the duration of the occupation for its dark portrayal of the hedonistic excesses of the ruling class. Today, it is often singled out as Jean Grémillon’s greatest achievement.

Starring Madeleine Renaud, Pierre Brasseur, Madeleine Robinson
