La Maison des bois (Parts 4 & 5)
The House in the Woods
A rare opportunity for you to enjoy this remarkable TV series by Pialat, about French rural life during WWI.
Dir Maurice Pialat
With Pierre Doris, Jacqueline Dufranne, Agathe Natanson
A seven-part series shown on French television once and rarely seen again until its recent splendid restoration, Pialat’s intimate epic follows a group of children exiled to the country during World War One and how they change the lives of their guardians. Supremely engrossing and moving, this recreation of a lost world of rural France was considered by Pialat to be his finest work.
