A Man and a Woman
1966. France. Produced, directed, and photographed by Claude Lelouch. Screenplay by Pierre Uytterhoeven, Lelouch. With Anouk Aimée, Jean-Louis Trintignant. One of the great international box-office triumphs of the 1960s, Lelouch’s tender drama of a widow who embarks on an intense affair with an equally melancholy racecar driver garnered dozens of awards, including the Palme d’Or at Cannes, Academy Awards for Best Foreign Film and Best Screenplay, a Best Actress Oscar nomination for Anouk Aimée and a Best Director nomination for Lelouch. Building on the success of last year’s tribute to Saul Bass in To Save and Project, this special co-presentation between MoMA and The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences—taking place at the Academy Theater, 111 East 59 Street—caps off a weekend of films presented by the great Anouk Aimée. It also showcases the Academy Film Archive’s recently announced Film-to-Film initiative, a project that accelerates the work of the Archive to acquire and create new film prints from at-risk elements. New print courtesy the Academy Film Archive. In French; English subtitles. 102 min.
Limited ticket availability through www.oscars.org. On Sale October 1, 2012.
