Directed by Jean-Luc Godard (1960, Drama, 1h30)
With Jean SebergJean-Paul BelmondoDaniel Boulanger
Cert. PG

Jean Seberg and Jean Paul Belmondo both show what it can mean to be young and in love. The anti-hero Michel is a swaggering, misogynistic petty criminal who steals a car in the South of France and kills a policeman on the road to Paris. There he meets up with Patricia, an American ex-girlfriend. They talk aimlessly about literature, watch movies and make love. All the time the police are closing in on Michel.

Mon Oncle d’Amérique/My American Uncle 

Directed by Alain Resnais - (1980, Comedy, 2h06)
With Gérard DepardieuNicole GarciaRoger Pierre
Cert. U

One of the oddest movies ever to emerge from the hand of director Alain Resnais, and also perhaps his most popular. A trio of people (Gérard Depardieu, Nicole Garcia, Roger Pierre) are presented as “case histories” by a lecturer—and we see them not only in their work environments, but also in terms of the cinematic role models (Jean Gabin, Jean Marais, Danielle Darrieux) that have helped  shape their self-images..
