L’ÉTERNEL RETOUR & LA SYMPHONIE PASTORALE

L’ÉTERNEL RETOUR 

New DCP Restoration

(1943, Jean Delannoy) Constantly threatened by a drunken brute, impossibly blonde Madeleine Sologne welcomes a marriage proposal from equally blonde, trendily-sweatered Jean Marais — only trouble is, it’s not for him. Jean Cocteau’s adaptation of the Tristan/Isolde legend.  Approx 107 min. DCP.
1:30, 5:30, 9:30

“Has a rare, dreamlike beauty.”
– Tom Milne, Time Out (London)


L’ÉTERNEL RETOUR & LA SYMPHONIE PASTORALE

LA SYMPHONIE PASTORALE

(1946, Jean Delannoy) Amid snowy Swiss Alpine landscapes, minister Pierre Blanchar takes in blind girl Michèle Morgan as part of his own family, but as she grows to womanhood, and his eldest son Jean Desailly (The Soft Skin) returns and falls in love, can he admit to himself what his own feelings have become? Adapted from the André Gide novel. Approx. 110 min. 16mm.
3:30, 7:30

 

“Jean Delannoy is, as usual, careful and literal, and this time his sensitivity enables Pierre Blanchar and Michele Morgan to give perhaps their most memorable performances; the film itself is emotionally overwhelming.”
– Pauline Kael
