THE CENTENARY OF DAVID LEAN

IL ETAIT UNE FOIS...LAWRENCE D'ARABIE Anne KUNVARI 2008 - 00:52

Once upon a time in 1962, « Lawrence of Arabia », a film by David Lean. Inspired by the life of T.E Lawrence, the film tells the epic story of the British officer who led, between 1916 and 1918, the rebellion of the Bedouin tribes against the Ottoman Empire. When the film is released at the very beginning of the 1960’s, Great-Britain and France are painfully withdrawing from their colonies, as Arab nationalism is experiencing a renaissance around the world.

THE PASSIONATE FRIENDS David LEAN 1948 - 01:31

"The Passionate Friends" has been hailed by critic David Thomson as the David Lean film 'most deserving rediscovery'. Mary has chosen a comfortable secure life with her rich banker husband over romantic passion with her first love Steven. Turmoil ensues when Steven suddenly reappears in her life. With its subtle performances, nuanced direction and beautiful cinematography, Lean's absorbing romance, adapted from a story by H. G. Wells, is a fascinating companion piece to "Brief Encounter".

THIS HAPPY BREED David LEAN 1944 - 01:54

Noël Coward was the source for this story of a London lower middle-class suburban family in the inter-war years from 1919 to 1939. The finely and wittily observed family feuds unfold against a panorama of public events ranging from the General Strike of 1926 to the outbreak of war itself. Beautifully acted by an ensemble cast and shot in Technicolor, the film was a huge contemporary hit and has lost little of its appeal.
