French Sundaes: Cible émouvante / Wild Target (1993) on 35mm

Sun 14 Jul 2024 @ 14:00 · Events

Cible émouvante / Wild TargetA brilliant dark comedy to conclude our French Sundaes season. Great performances and a sparkling script gives you an insight into paid assassins you would never expect.

“Anchoring the film is another of (Jean) Rochefort’s superb portrayals of the haut bourgeois whose very inscrutability and repression engender sympathy and amusement in equal portion. As his dignity is eroded in a knockabout farce around the streets of Paris, his emotions begin to unbutton” (Time Out).

This is screening from a Cinema Museum 35mm print, for the authentic cinema experience.

Each film is accompanied by an introductory illustrated talk by Jon Davies, Tutor in French Cinema at Morley College.

Doors open at 13.00, for a 14.00 start.

Refreshments will be available in our licensed cafe/bar.
