Film show: 'One Nation, One King', Marcel Ophüls retrospective and Dinard's British Film Festival
Date created :
A founding myth of the French Republic is the subject of "One Nation, One King". Director Pierre Schoeller delves into the first three years of the revolution, starting with the storming of the Bastille. Film critic Lisa Nesselson tells us why the devil is in the film’s very authentic details. Also, as Paris's Holocaust Museum hosts a retrospective of the work of Marcel Ophüls we take a look at why the director's work is regularly cited as a monumental part of film history.
And cross-Channel cinema is the toast of the Breton coast at the 29th Dinard British Film Festival; we flag up our favourites among the selection.
