Jacquot | 2011 | France | 100m
*Benoit Jacquot in-person
“Rendez-Vous with French Cinema”
6:30* at FSLC

“Instead of following the leader, it makes Versailles an insular cocoon where rumors float down candle-lit hallways on sleepless nights and the people trapped by their own excess are revealed more through reaction than action. Yes, it’s a challenge, but it’s one that Jacquot and company handle with something close to greatness. What’s really magical about Farewell is that it gives the audience something to do other than stare at the scenery. It’s thrilling. A rare example of something antique feeling genuinely brand new.”
Cole Abaius, Film School Rejects [Read More]
