The Cambridge Screen Media Group welcomes film critic Anthony Lane to Trinity Hall.

The main event of the evening will be a screening of Jean Renoir’s 1936 film Partie de campagne (39 minutes). This will be followed by a short lecture on the film, and on the debt that it owes to Maupassant’s 1881 story of the same name. After a period of discussion, there will then be a chance, for those who wish to stay, to view another Maupassant adaptation: La Maison Tellier, the central section of Max Ophuls’s portmanteau film of 1952, Le Plaisir.

Many of you will know Anthony Lane from his wide-ranging, ever-insightful and frequently hilarious film reviews, which have been appearing in the New Yorker since 1993.

The event is open to the public and free of charge.

This talk is part of the Cambridge Screen Media Group series.
