Claude Sautet: The Heart of Things Season at BFI : Sep-Oct 2013 + Win Tickets!

One of the most popular French directors of the 1970s, Claude Sautet was never afforded sufficient critical respect at home or abroad. The time has come for this overlooked master of la vie quotidienne.

Throughout September and October the BFI host Claude Sautet: The Heart of Things Season.
11th September – 8th October

There are careers that become trapped in the cracks of film history, caught between officially canonised movements and schools of critical thoughts, glossed over precisely because they defy easy categorisation. Such is the case of Claude Sautet (1924-2000), a contemporary of the ‘nouvelle vague’ but never part of it, who was still making commercial genre films as Godard and Rivette were taking hammer and sickle to the very syntax of cinema. He was also a storied ‘script doctor’ who made contributions to the likes of Eyes Without a Face and Borsalino, before finding his true métier with a series of triangulated romantic dramas that could be collectively grouped under the title of the most famous one: The Things of Life.
