Pattes Blanches (1948)

November 21, 2015 @ 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM


UCLA Film & Television Archive and the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the U.S. present “Jean Grémillon: Le Ciel set à Vous.”

Pattes Blanches (1948)
Directed by Jean Grémillon

A late-career but top-flight rehearsal of favorite themes (class politics expressed in a sexual triangle), director Jean Grémillon’s feature involves the arrival of a glamorous woman in an insular community, who makes herself the object of several men’s affections and sets up an incendiary rivalry between an aristocrat and his poorer half-brother. Love sweetens and sours as power realignments drive the story to its cataclysmic conclusion.
