Le Cinéma de papa

Review score: * * * * *

cast: Claude Berri, Yves Robert, Henia Ziv,

year: 1971

colour: yes


director: Claude Berri

runtime: 95

Berri's film takes its title from Truffaut's dismissive term for old-school cinema ('father's filmmaking'), something that – in Berri's mind – was to be celebrated not buried. Featuring Berri as himself, this intensely personal film explores the director's youth and adolescence, when he was forced to choose between a career in movies or in the family fur business.
