FanFan la Tulipe

Recommended Posts

On August 1, 2006, richardny4me wrote in the "Seen Any Good Movies" thread (in the Hot Topics Forum): "I saw a French swashbuckler today at the Film Forum in New York, entitled 'FanFan la Tulipe'. It starred Gina Lollobrigida as a beautiful gypsy and French actor Gerard Philipe in the title role. It was very lighthearted and enjoyable. It also kicks off the Film Forum's swashbuckling film festival, so I hope to see several more rarities soon."

 

So I thought I'd mention that this new 35mm print of FanFan la Tulipe is making the rounds of U.S. art houses. This film won the Silver Bear award at the Berlin Film Festival in 1952, and the Best Director (Christian-Jacque) prize at Cannes. It will play in San Francisco at one of the Landmark theatres November 3 - 9, 2006. So keep an eye out for the theatres near you...
