The most unique, innovative storyteller from France.
The French cinematic "authority" are supposed to know good Cinema, aren't they? Yes, they appreciate all the Hollywood American films; they stand in awe of their fantasy and imagination. But my question/concern is: Why don't the French appreciate this same imagination and uniqueness within THEIR OWN filmmakers? Arthur Joffé is a French director/writer who is a fantastic and incredible storyteller, and yet it is so very unfortunate that he doesn't get the recognition that he so rightly deserves! Please Please please do yourself a favor, go rent "Que La Lumiere Soit" (Let There Be Light), "Ne Quittez Pas" (Local Call) or "Alberto Express" to have the pleasure of viewing the work of one of France's true hidden treasures: the fantastic Arthur Joffé.
