FILM FORUM presents JACQUES BECKER’S PARIS YOUTH

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.
DIRECTED BY JACQUES BECKER
FRANCE | 1949 | FRENCH WITH ENGLISH SUBTITLES
A RIALTO PICTURES RELEASE

ANTOINE AND ANTOINETTE
A slice of Parisian working class life, as struggling Roger Pigaut dreams of a motorcycle, while wife Claire Mafféi occasionally blows a sou or two on a silly lottery ticket… but what if they actually won? A triumph of the unsung Becker’s gift for pure narrative. The only film ever to be awarded Cannes’ Prix du meilleur film psychologique et d’amour—Best Psychological and Love Film!
