A Tribute to the Cinema and Cinephiles, 27 June 2015
Author: Claudio Carvalho from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

The cinema student and cinephile Camille Miralis (Julie Gayet) is hired by a huge amount to assist the one-hundred year-old Monsieur Simon Cinéma (Michel Piccoli), whose memories is fading away, telling stories about the movies he made along one hundred and one days. Camille meets many movie stars that visit Monsieur Cinema, including his Italian friend Marcello Mastroianni, Alain Delon and his ex-wives Jeanne Moreau and Hanna Schygulla. Meanwhile Camille learns that he misses his grandson Vincent that disappeared and she plots with her boyfriend Camille "Mica" (Mathieu Demy) that wants to make a film to use their friend Vincent (Emmanuel Salinger) that has just come from India to pose as the grandson to inherit his assets.

On the centenary of the cinema history, the fantasy "Les cent et une nuits de Simon Cinéma" is a great tribute by Agnès Varda. The cinema forgetting the good films is an intelligent criticism to the quality of the contemporary commercial movies. The impressive number of cameo appearances associated to footages of classics is a delight to any cinephile. Unfortunately the lead story with Camille, Mica and Vincent is totally disappointing. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "As Cento e Uma Noites" ("The One Hundred and One Nights")
