One Hundred and One Nights

“A delirious birthday party in honor of filmmaking’s first century.” (Janet Maslin, New York Times)

Varda’s self-described “divertimento,” an homage to the movies, features an all-star international cast that includes Michel Piccoli (Belle de Jour) as the 100-year-old Mr. Simon Cinéma, who hires a young film student (Julie Gayet) to come on 101 consecutive days to help him review his illustrious career, which dates to the beginning of the motion picture business. Film clips, photos, and visits from the likes of Marcello Mastroianni, Anouk Aimée, Fanny Ardant, Sandrine Bonnaire, Alain Delon, Catherine Deneuve, Harrison Ford, Robert de Niro, and many others remind him of the pleasures of his life.

Tickets: $10 (members), $15 (nonmembers)

This film is part of the Varda: A Retrospective series.
