Eighteen years after his last film, Marcel Ophüls emerges from retirement as one of our last masters, the most corrosive, the funniest as well. And the most forceful. The director of LE CHAGRIN ET LA PITIÉ shares with us stories of his exceptionally rich life in this light-hearted yet bitter escapade though the century and the movies. Son of the great Max Ophüls, he is generous in his admiration. We also meet Jeanne Moreau, Bertolt Brecht, Ernst Lubitsch, Otto Preminger, Woody Allen, Stanley Kubrick and of course François Truffaut. “At the age of 86, still feisty and full of humour, Ophüls looks back on his life, revisiting old friends and drawing upon a rich array of film clips. He also pays extensive tribute to his father’s career. Ever the raconteur, he reflects on his twists of fortune, both good and bad. His disputatious nature was an asset for confronting war criminals, but a hazard for personal relationships.” (Thom Powers)
