In January and February, meet some of the most original voices in French comedy. Presented in collaboration with
visionary film magazine Cahiers
du Cinéma, Eccentrics of French
Comedy invites you to discover
an alternative history of French
comedy over the past 50 years,
ranging from the subtly amusing
to the downright bizarre. Every 7:30pm screening will be introduced by a high-profile personality in the arts.
“…among the very best French films of recent decades—indeed, ever…not to be missed.” — Richard Brody, The New Yorker
In the spirit of the French ciné-clubs and literary salons, CinéSalon pairs
an engaging French film with a social post-screening wine reception.
Every 7:30pm screening will be
introduced by a high-profile
personality in the arts.
