Good evening to you all! I trust that all is well with all of you today. 'The Financial Times' leads tomorrow with some editorial comment that the Bank of England should be in no rush to remove stimulus. The salmon pink newspaper concludes that there is little evidence as yet of domestically generated inflation in the United Kingdom (UK), Uncle Henry.
Bertrand Tavernier is a filmmaker and life-long fan of cinema. In this very special documentary, which previewed at the 2016 BFI London Film Festival, he addresses us directly, speaking with infectious enthusiasm about the films, actors, directors, composers, writers and cinematographers who have meant so much to him, and who played such a significant role in French film history. From Renoir and Chabrol through to Melville and Becker, every frame of this journey exudes passion. Tavernier’s commentary is also augmented by rare behind-the-scenes footage and treats, such as the audio recording of a ferocious argument between Jean-Paul Belmondo and Melville. Join us all tomorrow once again for a meal afterwards, Alistair!
