30 June-6 July
A new 4K restoration of Jean-Luc Godard’s (Breathless, Pierrot Le Fou) new-wave masterpiece, Le Mépris (1963), in celebration of its 60th anniversary.
A landmark in world cinema, and set around the extraordinary Villa Malaparte on Capri; Le Mépris tells the tragic romance between Paul and his wife, Camille. Paul is enlisted the task of re-writing a film script. Whilst he becomes engrossed in writing, he appears oblivious to the film producer’s interest in his irresistibly beautiful wife, Camille. In turn, we witness the hurtful unfolding of Paul & Camille’s marriage.
Le Mépris features highly-acclaimed style icon; Brigitte Bardot (And God Created Woman, Viva Maria!) as Camille, and legendary French talent Michel Piccoli (Belle De Jour, The Things of Live) as Paul. As well as, strong supporting cast featuring ‘master of darkness’ German-speaking Director, Fritz Lang as himself, renowned American actor Jack Palance as Jeremy, and the infamous Giorgia Moll as Francesca. The restoration also features the original and unforgettable soundtrack, ‘theme of Camille’, which has gained worldwide admiration in its own right, by multi-award winning composer, Georges Delerue.
