  • The Man of the Badlands, a documentary about Luc Moullet


Brigitte et Brigitte
Once upon a time, in this late example of the French New Wave Style by first-time director Luc Moullet, there were two girls named Brigitte who came from the provinces to go to school in Paris. There, they became friends, lost their countrified accents, became incredibly sophisticated, and lost their virginity pleasantly. As their story is told, French neo-Puritanism, the school system and many more cultural institutions come under fire. The girls' story unfolds in a free-wheeling way which may leave some loose ends lying about, but all-in-all, this art-house feature opened to a favorable (if modest) welcome by the critics. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi

Les Contrabandieres
Two young women leave the claustrophobic existence of the big city behind and move to a small border town. They get caught up with a border guard who is involved in smuggling from both sides of the border. When the border changes as a result of a political realignment, the two young women end up living with the guard. Both fall for the man, but jealousy rears its ugly head and they move back to the city. The ever-restless women soon leave the city behind and return to the border where they continue their youthful romps with the guard and other willing participants. The guard has women on both sides of the line who help in his illegal activities. ~ Dan Pavlides, Rovi

Up and Down
Une Aventure de Billy the Kid
Billy the Kid (Jean-Pierre Leaud), is both ruthless and bumbling in this impressionistic French-made western. Ruthless, in that he tracks down a witness to a robbery and kills him in cold blood. Bumbling, in that he literally stumbles over things throughout the film. He is also lucky, one might add, as instead of exacting revenge as she had planned, the bereaved girlfriend of a man he has shot walks off into the fabled sunset with Billy. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi

Genese D'Un Repas
In this documentary, Luc Moulet investigates the sources for the foods he is eating at the outset of the film: tuna and bananas. When he investigates the French labels on his tuna, he discovers that the fish were actually caught in Senegal, and his bananas came from Ecuador. The people who caught the fish and the growers of the bananas are interviewed, and their economic hardships are clearly underscored. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi

Anatomie d'Un Rapport
Director Luc Moullet plays a movie director who is having a hard time making ends meet and is also having a hard time satisfying his wife. In the film, they fight and talk, make up, talk and fight. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi
