The Cinémathèque is showing two unmissable retrospectives in April, featuring the films of Michael Mann and Audrey Hepburn.
The Cinémathèque is a veritable treasure trove for film lovers that often goes unappreciated. This month the film library is screening two retrospectives from its archive collection.
Paying homage to the grace and beauty of Audrey Hepburn, this week’s screenings are Roman Holiday with Gregory Peck and the musical Funny Face, in which she appears alongside Fred Astaire, as well as King Vidor’s epic War And Peace, for which Hepburn was nominated for several prestigious awards for her role as Natasha Rostova.
Also on the bill are two Billy Wilder films, 1957’s Love In The Afternoon opposite Gary Cooper and 1954’s Sabrina, in which Hepburn is caught between brothers Humphrey Bogart and William Holden.
The other retrospective takes a look at the work of one of the most important American directors of the last three decades, Michael Mann, with films including his fantastic film classic The Keep and literary adaptation The Last Of The Mohicans.
Also on the programme later in the month are Mann’s Hannibal Lecter thriller Manhunter (the first film to feature the cannibal killer, played by Brian Cox) and heist thriller Heat, which famously was the first film to feature Al Pacino and Robert De Niro on screen together.
