I watched a part of this foreign film on the TV last year. I can't recall what the name is, and I've been trying to figure out what it was for a few days now to no avail. The language was either French or Italian (my memory isn't the best). I want to lean more towards French as I think I remember seeing the name Pierre (either an actor or character) attached to the information of the film that I saw on the guide. All I can really remember about the movie is that this man was in this apartment/hotel at some point and a priest (I think) was talking to him. The man had a best friend who was an alcoholic, and at some point during the movie, he had drank so much that he was in some barn, passed out. The man trekked through the snow to get him because his wife was giving birth to his child. Earlier in the film, he was in a wooded area, talking to his friend's wife about him. Does anyone know what this film is named?
Les Stances a Sophie is a French New Wave Film directed by Academy Award winner Moshe Mizrahi. The film is very notable for one of my favorite jazz albums. The story of the band who recorded it--The Art Ensemble of Chicago--is a great tale in and of itself, but the soundtrack is a work of beauty. But I can't find this film for the life of me! I did request it but they only very rarely take requests. Nothing on Wikipedia, Amazon has nothing, and could only find traces of it online. I know for a fact it is not lost, as a blog recently reviewed it, but I just want to see this movie.
I saw a movie some time ago about a college football player who was failing french. He winds up being tutored by a girl who falls in love with him. He winds up engaged to another girl, fails French, but is given one last chance to sort his grades. He goes back to the tutor, realized he is in love with her an intentionally fails his French exam, but she is the one grading it, and passes him. There is a scene where they dance around the library naming things in French. Can anyone tell me the name of the movie? I've been looking for a few hours now and I can't find it.
Last night I watched Rififi that french film directed by Jules Dassin. Recall from our class that Jules was one of those 10 Black listed Hollywood writers, directors, etc. from House Unamerican Activities Commission times of the late 1940's and early 50's. Rififi is heist story and very well done. I highly recommend it. This was on Blu-ray and so there was some extras. There was an interview with Dassin from 2000 and he tells stories of Hollywood, the Blacklist, and the process of making the film.
