Paris in July - Final week links and wrap ups

This week, Mel posed the question about French Movies, so I thought I'd share these idea's. I haven't seen any of these yet, but the sydney Classic Film Festival will be showing these next month. Does anyone know any of these classics?  ... all details included here come straight from the Alliance francaise website. 
 Lovers Like Us
Rappeneau’s Lovers like Us, showcases the dream couple of Catherine Deneuve and Yves Montand amidst the exotic backdrop of Venezuela

Vernon Dobtcheff, Luigi Vannucchi, Tony Roberts, Bobo Lewis

 Viva Maria
Viva Maria! is a full blown spectacle – farcical, eccentric and undeniably sexy. The femmes encounter combats, love affairs, and other nonsense on this revolutionary ride.
Director: Louis Malle
Brigitte Bardot, Jeanne Moreau, Paulette Dubost, 
Claudio Brook, Carlos Lopez Moctezuma, Paolo Bendandi
Comedy, Adventure
France, Italy

Breathless was Jean-Luc Godard’s first feature, boldly heralding the arrival of French New Wave (La Nouvelle Vague) in 1960. Cool, raw and existential, this black and white masterwork captures the sheer joie de vivre of young love ­in a style unparalleled at its time.

Liliane Dreyfus, Claude Mansard, Van Doude

 Cesar & Rosalie
Rosalie is the story of Cesar, Rosalie… and David aussi. This love triangle will leave you reflecting on the intricacies of love, freedom and friendship.
Director: Claude Sautet
Cast: Romy Schneider, Yves Montand, Sami Frey, 
Umberto Orsini, Isabelle Huppert, Bernard Le Coq
Date: 1972

 I'll look forward to hearing if anyone has any recommendations for these films!

Now for our final week of links to Paris in July Posts... and any wrap ups for what has been a fun and fascinating tour of Paris and everything we love about Paris Culture....


  1. Oh, I hope I have time for a French film today. That sounds lovely. Thanks so much for hosting this terrific meme throughout July.

  2. Paulita, Paris in July is a delight to host, but its only as good as the participants! So a huge thankyou to you and everyone else for joining in. I'm hoping to do a big wrap up post next weekend (when I've survived the next week of work)..
