THE THOUSAND PLANETS OF LUC BESSON
Double Feature!
SUBWAY / LE DERNIER COMBAT

Presented by the American Cinematheque and the French Film and TV office, Consulate General of France, Los Angeles. Special thanks to TV5MONDE, now streaming the best of French-language films online with Sling TV.

SUBWAY
1985, Gaumont, 104 min, France, Dir: Luc Besson

Director Luc Besson’s second film and first bona fide hit is a delicious neo-noir, live-action comic book, a hymn to the new-wave rhythms of nocturnal street life and private romantic fantasies. Inhabitant of the Paris subway and wannabe rocker Fred (Christopher Lambert) falls for Helena (Isabelle Adjani) after first trying to blackmail her. A rogue’s gallery of colorful suburban dwellers comprises Fred’s neighbors. With Richard Bohringer, Jean-Hugues Anglade. In French with English subtitles.


35 mm!

LE DERNIER COMBAT
THE LAST BATTLE
1983, Gaumont, 93 min, France, Dir: Luc Besson

Shooting in luminously stark black-and-white, director Luc Besson paints a bleak, evocative, post-apocalyptic portrait of a dying world where people no longer speak and sometimes the sky rains fish. For this, his debut feature, Besson remade his first film, the sci-fi short "L'Avant Dernier." With Pierre Jolivet and Jean Reno.


SUBWAY in French with English subtitles. | Screening formats: DCP (SUBWAY), 35mm (LE DERNIER COMBAT)
