AFI SILVER THEATER presents RENDEZVOUS IN JULY

Budding anthropologist Daniel Gélin (Hitchcock’s Man Who Knew Too Much) dreams of making a film in Africa, as he and trés hipster pals Maurice Ronet (Purple Noon) and company hang out in smoky Left Bank jazz clubs and whip around sun-splashed post-war Paris – and the Seine – in their amphibious “Duck.” From the director of Touchez-pas au Grisbi.

Winner: Prix Louis Delluc, Best French Film, 1949

“SUPERABUNDANT IN CHARM, WIT AND SOUL”

– Glenn Kenny, The New York Times

“A teeming generational portrait that reveals a new tone and mood among young Parisians coming of age after the end of the war”

– Richard Brody, The New Yorker

“An assured comedy of manners, mishaps and misunderstandings that showcased the Left Bank jazz scene... Captured youth with a subversive energy that proved pivotal to the evolution of the French New Wave.”
– David Parker, British Film Institute

DIRECTED BY JACQUES BECKER
