Film>> Miami Beach Cinematheque presents Pierre Etaix

The monthly Great Director Series of the MIami Beach Cinematheque in April focuses on the works of Pierre Etaix with such gems from the The Suitor, Rupture or YOYO.


“A French comedy master whose films went unseen for decades as a result of legal tangles, director-actor Pierre Etaix is a treasure the cinematic world has rediscovered and embraced with relish. His work can be placed on the spectrum of classic physical comedy with that of Jacques Tati and Jerry Lewis, but it also stands alone in its good-natured delicacy.

These films, influenced by Etaix’s experiences as a circus acrobat and clown and by the silent film comedies he adored, are elegantly deadpan, but as an on-screen presence, Etaix radiates warmth…

Not one of these is anything less than a bracing and witty delight.” -The Criterion Collection
