Trailer of the Day: Le Grand Amour

Le Grand Amour

Pierre is dutifully married to Florence. Everything is fine in their relationship and at work. Manager of his father-in-law’s factory, he spends his days signing checks and his evenings watching TV. The years pass monotonously until a very young new secretary is hired and Pierre, shaken by infatuation, starts to dream … “One of those cinematic marvels that leaves me shaking my head and wondering where it has been all my life.”—The New Yorker. “Mr. Étaix shows his debt to the great clowns of silent cinema like Buster Keaton. Sprinkled throughout, though, are involved passages that spin gloriously, surrealistically, off the narrative rails.”—The New York Times (87 mins.)

LE GRAND AMOUR screens on Friday, April 12 and Sunday, April 14 at 7p.m. in our Whitsell Auditorium (located in the Portland Art Museum) as part of our The Films of Pierre Étaix retrospective.

Advanced tickets are available for purchase here.
