Brigitte and Brigitte / Up and Down: The Films of Luc Moullet

1966 NR

Two girls gain sophistication but lose their innocence at a Parisian school in Brigitte and Brigitte, one of two comedies from French new wave director Luc Moullet. Part two of the double feature, Up and Down, follows a crazy team of cyclists as they take on the steep slopes of the Alps. Françoise Vatel, Colette Descombes, Claude Chabrol, Samuel Fuller, Eric Rohmer, Jean Abeille and Clement Boutterin star in this pair of absurdist films.
