César and Rosalie

By Claude Sautet
1972 – France – 110 min
June 11 | 7:00 p.m.

As part of the film series "Les Femmes Essentielles," the Cultural Services of the French Embassy present a screening of the film César and Rosalie​.

Viennese by birth, Romy Schneider (1938 - 1982) began acting in German films, but gained international stardom in such films as Orson Welles’ The Trial, Jacques Deray’s La Piscine, and Claude Sautet’s Les Choses de la vie. Tragically, she died of poor health at age 43. Almodóvar dedicated his film All About My Mother to Schneider’s memory.

In Sautet’s César and Rosalie, Romy Schneider plays a recent divorcee who splits her time between family and the wealthy César (Yves Montand). When David (Sami Frey), an old flame of Rosalie’s, appears, the two men vie for her affections. Sautet masterfully depicts the messy actuality of love, portraying the complicated elusiveness of loving the one you’re with.

In French with English subtitles.
