Le Feu Follet (12)

TICKETS: £5 (under 24’s £4)


What is meaning? How do we connect with others? Why do we go on? At the very height of his artistic powers, director Louis Malle’s frank portrait of a recovering alcoholic’s attempts to discover a reason to live is an absorbing and moving interrogation of the grandest questions of our existence.

I am patient. I’ve done nothing but wait. All my life. Waiting – for something to happen. For what, I don’t know.

“Adapting for the screen, whether it be a novel, a stage play, a biography, a historical event or a newspaper article, presents its own particular problems, perhaps more technical, but in no way less intricate than writing an original screenplay. I’ve spent decades ruminating on these issues, without necessarily having reached any firm conclusions, though I do by now, I suppose, have a few tentative suggestions. I’m delighted at the opportunity to visit Bridport to be able to kick some of these suggestions around.”
