Les Jeux Sont Faits

Somewhere between Heaven Can Wait and No Exit, between film noir and romantic comedy, is this almost-never screened gem from a screenplay by Jean-Paul Sartre. In the film, directed by Jean Delannoy, a dead socialist man (Marcello Pagliero) and a dead upper-class woman (Micheline Presle) meet in heaven. They fall in love, and learn they will be allowed a second chance on earth IF their devotion to each other can survive one day among the living.

Playing at the Bootleg Theater on Sunday, March 24, 2019. Doors open at 6:00 pm, screening at 6:30pm. Presented by Projections and Vidiots. Don't miss the opportunity to see this rare find on 16mm print!
