3 DAYS IN SANTA MONICA: JULIE DELPY ON FILM
Double Feature!
BEATRICE / VOYAGER
Co-presented by the French Film and TV office, French Consulate Los Angeles
BEATRICE
La passion Béatrice
1987, AMLF, 130 min, Dir: Bertrand Tavernier

This unflinching portrait of life in medieval France stars Bernard-Pierre Donnadieu as François, who returns home after years of battle a changed man. Daughter Béatrice (Julie Delpy) idolizes him at first, but her love is challenged by François’ growing brutality. “No other Middle Ages period film looks quite like this one - and only a few, like Walerian Borowczyk's 1971 BLANCHE, tell such seemingly merciless and anti-romantic stories.” – Michael Wilmington, Los Angeles Times.


35 mm!

VOYAGER
Homo Faber
1991, Westchester Films, 117 min, Dir: Volker Schlöndorff

Walter Faber (Sam Shepard) is a man of logic buffeted by coincidences - a plane crash, a chance meeting of a friend’s brother … and a young woman (Julie Delpy, wonderful here) with a connection to his life that he doesn’t suspect. While the politics of Max Frisch’s source novel are muted in this beautiful 1950s-set adaptation, its focus on mysterious fate and tragic love remains powerful.


Screening formats: DCP (BEATRICE), 35mm (VOYAGER)
