After The Wave: Loulou

Huppert is Nelly, a married, upper-middle-class accountant; Depardieu is Loulou, a working-class lout who catches her eye at a disco. She dances with him, leaves with him, stays with him. “What’s he got?” grumbles her husband. “He never stops,” she replies bluntly.

Director Maurice Pialat was the son of a lorry driver. In his work, he drew extensively on his own lived experience; his films are grounded in working-class reality and feature a constellation of protagonists pursuing often contradictory and self-destructive needs and desires. This film is one of two he made concerned explicitly with female desire; though it’s his name in the title, Loulou here is object not subject, and sex is a force that shatters class allegiances.

France, 1980, Dir. Maurice Pialat, 101 min, 35mm presentation

After the Wave: Touched In The Head

Chris is fired by the boulangerie where he works when he turns up late one morning. He loses not just his job but also his home, since the flat he lives in is provided by his employer. Angry at not receiving his back-pay, Chris is advised by his union to barricade himself in his room, which he does.

There he is joined by his best friend, his girlfriend, and a free-wheeling Swedish girl who has been crashing with him temporarily and to whom he is strongly attracted. In the confines of the room, the self-styled rebels bounce off the walls and each other in a perfect, talky, post-68 confection.

France, 1974, Dir. Jacques Doillon, 104 min, Digital presentation

The Brink (15)

The Brink is a fly-on-the-wall documentary that follows Bannon through the 2018 mid-term elections in the United States, shedding light on his efforts to mobilise and unify far-right parties in order to win seats in the May 2019 European Parliamentary elections.

To maintain his power and influence, the former Goldman Sachs banker and media investor reinvents himself — as he has many times before — this time as the self-appointed leader of a global populist movement. Keen manipulator of the press and gifted self-promoter, Bannon continues to draw headlines and protests wherever he goes, feeding the powerful myth on which his survival relies.

Only You (15)

Elena (Laia Costa), 35, and Jake (Josh O'Connor), 26, meet by chance on New Years Eve, fighting for the same taxi. But, instead of going their separate ways after a shared ride, they start a passionate relationship. Within weeks they are living together, and not long after they talk about starting a family.

But, as the seasons pass, reality catches up with them. Falling in love was the easy part, but can they remain in love when life doesn’t give them everything they hoped for?
