The Great Love @ Classic French Film Festival
The Great Love
(Le grand amour)
Pierre Etaix
France
1969, color, 87 min. Restoration, Blu-ray source

Despite having a loving and patient wife at home, a good-natured suit-and-tie man, played by writer-director Pierre Etaix, finds himself hopelessly attracted to his gorgeous new secretary in this gently satirical tale of temptation. From this simple, standard premise, Etaix weaves a constantly surprising web of complexly conceived jokes. "Le grand amour" is a cutting, nearly Buñuelian takedown of the bourgeoisie that somehow doesn't have a mean bone in its body.

Intro/discussion by Andrew Wyatt, film critic for St. Louis Magazine's Look/Listen arts-and-entertainment blog

Shown with:
Happy Anniversary (Heureux anniversaire)
Pierre Etaix, 1962, B&W, 12 min.
A husband's efforts to run anniversary-related errands before a celebratory dinner with his wife are constantly thwarted.
