Danielle Darrieux une femme moderne
La première véritable biographie de l'une des plus grandes actrices du 20ème siècle. Danielle Darrieux fêtera ses 100 ans le 1er mai 2017. Ses initiales DD ont été célèbres bien avant BB. Danielle Darrieux a tourné son premier film en 1931, à l'âge de 14 ans. Elle charme par son naturel et incarne alors la jeune femme moderne du cinéma français, une " drôle de gosse " sexy et pétulante. En 1936 Mayerling de Litvak prouve qu'elle peut tout jouer, la comédie comme le drame. Ce film en fait une star internationale et lui ouvre les portes d'Hollywood. Elle est alors la plus populaire des actrices françaises. Toutes les jeunes femmes veulent lui ressembler. Dans les années cinquante, la star triomphe aux côtés de Gérard Philipe, Jean Gabin, James Mason ou Jean Marais. Elle devient la muse de Max Ophuls et s'impose dans Marie-Octobre. En 1967, Jacques Demy la choisit pour incarner la mère de Catherine Deneuve, qu'elle retrouve en 2002 dans Huit femmes. Au fil des décennies, l'actrice incarnera toujours une femme intelligente, en quête de liberté. Ses trois mariages, dont celui avec Porfirio Rubirosa, seront scrutés par les médias, tout comme ses agissements sous l'Occupation. Ce livre est une traversée documentée de la carrière de la star. Révélant des faits méconnus et des films oubliés, il s'attache à mettre en lumière la modernité que Danielle Darrieux a su porter durant 80 ans de cinéma.
The French Screen Goddess
Many years before Brigitte Bardot and Catherine Deneuve rose to fame, the French cinema produced a host of glamorous female stars designed to rival their Hollywood counterparts. Bathed in soft light, discussed adoringly in fan magazines and shown wearing the latest fashions, these 'cinematic stars' emerged in opposition to France's traditional stage-based stardom, while remaining, through the roles they played and the looks they sported, a distinctly French phenomenon. The French Screen Goddess examines how these stars influenced the narratives and look of their films, contributed to defining the period's new, emancipated femininity -, the 'modern woman' -, and related to the decade's politics, particularly the Popular Front of the mid-1930s. The book focuses on the three most important examples of this type of stardom, Annabella, Danielle Darrieux and Michele Morgan, while also considering many other key stars, such as Arletty, Viviane Romance and Jean Gabin. Previously neglected films are considered and true classics of French cinema re-examined, with Rene Clair's Quatorze juillet, Julien Duvivier's La Bandera, and Marcel Carne's Le Quai des brumes and Hotel du Nord foremost among these.
Les Liaisons Dangereuses
‘I resolved to write a book which would create some stir in the world and continue to do after I had gone from it.’ - Choderlos de Laclos A great sensation at the time of first publication, Les Liaisons Dangereuses reads as much the most 'modern' of eighteenth-century novels. Viewed by some critics as a morality tale and others as a subtle inquiry into libertinism, it brilliantly depicts the foibles of the French aristocracy on the eve of the French Revolution. Renowned for its exploration of lust, revenge and human malice, and still carrying a tremendous power to shock, its adaptations for screen and stage have made its central characters notorious for their sophisticated and ultimately tragic games of seduction and manipulation.
This new publication, accompanying an exhibition at Tate Modern, will examine Tillmans's evolving practice showcasing his photography but also his video, digital slide projections, publications and recorded music. Mark Godfrey gives an overarching view of Tillmans's practice, from the physical materiality of the work, to space and installation, to his use of abstraction. Tom Holert focuses on Tillmans's relationship with politics and society, with particular emphasis on events of the last 15 years and the way Tillmans uses images and methods of distribution to examine global concerns such as migration and identity politics. 00Wolfgang Tillmans is the first photographer to win the Turner Prize (in 2000), his practice is characterised by constant investigation into the boundaries of the photographic medium and a preoccupation with the process of photography itself. 00Exhibition: Tate Modern, London, United Kingdom (15.02-11.06.2017).
Harold and Maude
Nineteen-year-old Harold Chasen is obsessed with death. He fakes suicides to shock his self-obsessed mother, drives a hearse, and attends funerals of complete strangers. Seventy-nine-year-old Maude Chardin, on the other hand, adores life. She liberates trees from city sidewalks and transplants them to the forest, paints smiles on the faces of church statues, and "borrows" cars to remind their owners that life is fleeting—here today, gone tomorrow! A chance meeting between the two turns into a madcap, whirlwind romance, and Harold learns that life is worth living, and how to play the banjo. Harold and Maude started as Colin Higgins's master's thesis at UCLA Film School. He was working as a pool boy when Paramount purchased the script. The 1971 film, directed by Hal Ashby, bombed. But then this quirky, dark comedy began being shown on college campuses and at midnight-movie theaters, and it gained a loyal cult following. In 1997 it was selected for inclusion on the National Film Registry at the Library of Congress. This novelization was published shortly after the film's release, but has been out of print for more than 30 years. Even fans who have seen the movie dozens of times will find this companion valuable, as it gives fresh elements to watch for and answers many of the film's unresolved questions. Colin Higgins was a screenwriter, director, and producer of films that included Harold and Maude, Silver Streak, 9 to 5, and The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas. He died in 1988.

Read the lost masterpiece behind the major new film starring Kristin Scott Thomas and Michelle Williams Set during the year that France fell to the Nazis, Suite Française falls into two parts. The first is a brilliant depiction of a group of Parisians as they flee the Nazi invasion; the second follows the inhabitants of a small rural community under occupation. Suite Française is a novel that teems with wonderful characters struggling with the new regime. However, amidst the mess of defeat, and all the hypocrisy and compromise, there is hope. True nobility and love exist, but often in surprising places. Irène Némirovsky began writing Suite Française in 1940, but her death in Auschwitz prevented her from seeing the day, sixty-five years later, that the novel would be discovered by her daughter and hailed worldwide as a masterpiece.
