  • Le Départ

    1967. Belgium. Directed by Jerzy Skolimowski. Screenplay by Skolimowski, Andrzej Kostenko. Music by Krzysztof Komeda. With Jean-Pierre Léaud, Catherine Duport. Skolimowski's exuberant New Wave film, shot at breakneck speed in Belgium with an appropriately punchy score by Polish compatriot Komeda, reunites the two stars of Jean-Luc Godard's Masculin Féminin (1966). Léaud is a bored and restless hairdresser's apprentice who is fanatically obsessed with racing cars, and Duport is the beautiful woman who sexually awakens him. An unmistakably Polish surrealist wit pervades the young lovers' escapades. Winner of the top prize at that year's Berlin Film Festival. [[web]]On May 19, selections of Komeda's music will be performed live at the Museum by the Tomasz Stanko Quartet with special guest Billy Harper during A Concert Tribute to Krzysztof Komeda.[[endblock]] [[kiosk]]On May 19, selections of Komeda's music will be performed live at the Museum by the Tomasz Stanko Quartet with special guest Billy Harper during A Concert Tribute to Krzysztof Komeda.[[endblock]] In French, English subtitles. 97 min.
