Today's the last day of the Stella Artois 'Recyclage de Luxe' film festival on the Auteurs. They're today showcasing Resnais' 'Hiroshima, Mon Amour' (subtitled). It's been the end of a great week for we film-lovers and I've learned a lot. Enjoy here: http://www.theauteurs.com/stellaartois (18+, UK Only)

If you're interested in the work of 'nouvelle vague' director Chris Marker, you mustn't miss the chance to catch his classic film 'La Jetée' on The Auteurs today. You can find it here: http://bit.ly/tasrd(18+, UK Only). It was the inspiration behind Gilliam's great 'Twleve Monkeys'.

I'm often sceptical when it comes to classic French cinema - I tend to be more a fan of German/Weimar pre-war films and then (guilty I know!) American post-war cinema. I do, however, have respect for many of the French films I've seen (Le Petit Soldatsprings to mind).
I'd been meaning to watch more New Wave cinema for quite some time and then I had the opportunity to do it with The Auteur's Stella Artois online film festival (18+, UK Only). I didn't regret it. Its cinematography, story and performances are completely spot-on. Excellent.

Stella Artois is bringing French classics of the '60s to The Auteurs for 7 days starting tomorrow. This is UK only and do remember to drink responsibly!
I remember studying French and German cinema back at Warwick for a while as part of my History degree. It gave me a better insite into classic films in general (and if you're doing History now I think the module was History of Germany) - we covered Weimer films and I wrote an essay on the post-war cinematic reactions of France and Germany.
These gilms are from the '60s and the roster is:
Lola - 1961
The 400 Blows - 1959
Jules and Jim - 1962
Masculin féminin: 15 faits précis -1966
Vivre sa vie - 1962
La Jetee - 1962
Hiroshima, mon amour - 1959
