Ooh la la!

In an attempt to tap into our inner francophile, Jeff, Michael and I discuss four films from the French New Wave. We take on Truffaut’s THE 400 BLOWS, Jean-Luc Godard’s ALPHAVILLE, Eric Rohmer’s MY NIGHT AT MAUD’S and Claude Chabrol’s LES BICHES. Pouvez-vous dire “the grandfathers of Indie Film?”

Yeah, I know it sounds pretentious. We even drink French wine and shizzle. But, man, how can you not dig the French New Wave and its influence on modern cinema? Nor acknowledge that any or all love for film stems from those directors who started off as critics of the great Cahiers Du Cinema. In other words: if you’re reading this now and are a fan of our show, then you have the French New Wave guys to thank for it all.

    Yay, French New Wave! Good topic. While we’re at it, how about an Italian Neo-Realism episode? I’d agree with Mike; when I hear “French New Wave”, Breathless is where my mind goes.
