Isabel Coixet and the best films of the year are the other highlights of the month.
Films for all tastes. The Filmoteca de Catalunya has prepared a very varied programme for February, including classic works by some of the crucial figures in the history of film, alongside more contemporary works.
The British director Alfred Hitchcock will be the first focus of the month, with the screening of some of his older works: 9 silent films that have been restored by the British Film Institute and that have now reached Barcelona in the shape of impeccable copies, with the help of the British Council. On Tuesday 9th February we can see The Pleasure Garden; on Thursday 11th Downhill; on Friday 12th and Sunday 14th The Ring; on Tuesday 16th and Saturday 20th Easy Virtue; on Wednesday 17th and Thursday 18th Champagne, on Friday 19th and Sunday 21st The Farmer’s Wife; on Tuesday 23rd and Saturday 27th Blackmail, and on Wednesday 24th and Friday 26th The Manxman.
Gaumont, 120 Years of European Cinema is the other big highlight of the cycle. It’s a review of the career of a key film studio in the history of cinema, for which iconic directors like Jean Luc Godard, Luc Besson, Ettore Scola, Yves Montad, Ingrid Bergman and Jean Renoir all worked. The latter’s Toni, dating from 1934, can be seen on the 4th and 5th of February. Max Ophuls is another featured director, with the screening of Le plaisir on the 11th and 14th of February.
