For serious students of cinema...
5 May 2020 | by skepticskepticalSee all my reviews

I thought that I had seen a lot of French films, but now after having gone on this journey with Bernard Tavernier, I realize that I have missed many more! This documentary should be required viewing for film students and basically anyone who appreciates world cinema and/or French culture and language.

Incredibly interesting, informative and strangely intimate. Merci beaucoup, Bernard, mon ami!
