Claire Denis Rétrospective – October 11 – November 10, 2013 [fr]
From October 11 to November 10, 2013 the TIFF Cinémathèque presents a retrospective of French director Claire Denis. « Objects of Desire: The Cinema of Claire Denis » looks back at the career of the director since her first film ‘Chocolat’ in 1988, inspired by her childhood in Africa.
Renowned for her sensual, sometimes shocking, and always formally daring films, Claire Denis has established herself as one of the true visionaries of contemporary world cinema.
Her latest film ‘Bastards’ opens at TIFF Bell Lightbox in theatrical release in conjunction with the retrospective on Friday, October 11. ‘Bastards’ slowly unravels a labyrinthine revenge drama centered on a ship’s captain (Vincent Lindon), who returns to Paris when his brother-in-law is found dead. The film was presented this year, at Cannes in the official selection ‘Un certain regard’ and at the Toronto International Film Festival.
