The Lovers of Nouvelle Vague

Another summer of love is upon us, and Bunkamura's Le Cinema is putting on a very suitable programme for the season: 21 French New Wave films, including Truffaut's Jules and Jim (1962), The 400 Blows (1959) and Love on the Run (1979), and Godard's Band of Outsiders (1964) and Masculin Féminin (1966) will be screened during July, making for a nice chance to fill up any holes in your cinematic education while enjoying a narrative style that feels fresh even half a century after it emerged. And if you've already seen the classics, why not try films like Bad Blood (1986) by Leos Carax, the story of an STD spread by loveless sex, or Zazie dans le Métro (1960), a sharp Louis Malle comedy exploring complex themes through the eyes of a young runaway. The full programme is listed in English here.
