Billy Wilder

From June 28th until July 8th, a Billy Wilder retrospective will take place at the Festival International du Film de La Rochelle (La Rochelle International Film Festival). Twenty movies from the famous director will be shown on this special occasion.
Born in 1906, the movie director native of Sucha in Galicia has worked for a long time in Europe, especially Germany and France, before leaving for Hollywood even if he wasn’t talking English.

During the Festival, among Wilder movies that will be shown, there will be classical ones such as Ariane (1957), Some Like It Hot (1959), The Apartment (1960) or Irma La Douce (1963), but also less famous ones as One, Two, Three (1961), The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes (1970) or The Front Page (1974).
