Maurice Pialat : A Retrospective

September 10, 2015 | By FRENCH CULTURE BOSTON

Maurice Pialat (1925-2003) directed eleven feature films between 1968 and 1995. Each is a gripping slice of life, whether depicting adolescents experimenting with sex, the decline of an affair, the struggles of police detectives and priests, or the last days of Van Gogh.
