Cannes Classics: From the Spaghetti Western to the New Wave

"Once Upon a Time... The Revolution" and "Two of the New Wave" at Cannes Classics

Cannes Classics, the Festival program of landmark films of the past, will be closing today with the 3pm screening of a print of the spaghetti western Once Upon a Time... The Revolution (1971), by Sergio Leone. The Cineteca di Bologna and the lab Immagine Ritrovata can take credit for the restoration. At 7pm, festivalgoers are invited to discover Two of the New Wave, to be presented by the director of the documentary, Emmanuel Laurent. Celebrating the fifty-year anniversary of the birth of the New Wave, this feature takes us back to 1959, when the Wave hit the Cannes Festival with the presentation of Quatre cents coups (The 400 Blows), by François Truffaut, who won Best Director that year. Going on to examine the genesis of Jean-Luc Godard's A bout de souffle (Breathless), it sheds light on the similarities and differences between these two emblematic "auteurs."
