French Film

Tivoli Kansas City's Favorite Independent Arthouse Theater 4050 Pennsylvania, Kansas City, MO 64111


Opens Friday, October 12Based on a true story, this period film that’s more than ready for 2018 embodies the power of thinking forward in more ways than one. After marrying a successful Parisian writer known commonly as “Willy” (Dominic West), Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette (Keira Knightley) is transplanted from her childhood home in rural France to the intellectual and artistic splendor of Paris. Soon after, Willy convinces Colette to ghostwrite for him. She pens a semi-autobiographical novel about a witty and brazen country girl named Claudine, sparking a bestseller and a cultural sensation. After its success, Colette and Willy become the talk of Paris and their adventures inspire additional Claudine novels. Colette’s fight over creative ownership and gender roles drives her to overcome societal constraints, revolutionizing literature, fashion and sexual expression. Directed by Wash Westmoreland (STILL ALICE)

Arts & Artists SeriesTHE MYSTERY OF PICASSOWednesday, October 17 - 7:00pmBUY ADVANCE TICKETSSaturday, October 27 - 11:00amBUY ADVANCE TICKETSHenri-Georges Clouzot’s The Mystery of Picasso stands alone as one of the greatest films about the creative process of a painter. In 1955, Clouzot joined forces with his friend Picasso to make an entirely new kind of art film. They devised an innovative technique in which the camera was placed behind a semi-transparent surface on which the artist drew with special inks that bled through the canvas. Clouzot captured a perfect reverse image of Picasso’s brushstrokes and the motion picture screen itself becomes the artist’s canvas. Here, the painter creates, and sometimes obliterates, twenty works (most of them, in fact, destroyed after the shoot), ranging from playful black-and-white sketches to Cinemascope color murals. The film is exhilarating, mesmerizing, enchanting, and unforgettable. The French government agreed and in 1984 declared it a national treasure.
