Michel Piccoli

“There are musicians who practice all the time but we actors are not able to do that. We don't have an instrument, except if you say we are our own instrument, and yet I always try to continue searching and working for the moment where you have to deliver.”

    THE DISCREET CHARM OF THE BOURGEOISIE

    Luis Buñuel France, 1972

    What secrets lurk inside a group of wealthy sophisticates who only want a nice, pleasant dinner party? Luis Buñuel’s Oscar-winning classic is one of his signature films: a fiendishly witty comedy bouncing through reality, dreams, faith, sex, and revolution with the lightest and cheekiest touch.

    THAT OBSCURE OBJECT OF DESIRE

    Luis Buñuel France, 1977

    Luis Buñuel’s final film and thus his last collaboration with Jean-Claude Carrière wryly belongs in the canon of “male humiliation” cinema. Uniquely featuring two different actresses in the same role, this impiously perverse swan song provocatively satirizes human desire and patriarchal hypocrisy.

    DIARY OF A CHAMBERMAID

    Luis Buñuel France, 1964

    In Luis Buñuel’s attack on provincial French values, Jeanne Moreau’s pitch-perfect performance exudes a mock-obedience and petulant sensuality, deliciously unmasking bourgeois hypocrisy. Keep your eyes peeled for a droll cameo from scriptwriter Jean-Claude Carrière as a flustered country priest!

    DEATH IN THE GARDEN

    Luis Buñuel France, 1956

    Shot in brilliant Eastmancolor, Death in the Garden is one of Luis Buñuel’s most overlooked gems: a pulsating, far-side-of-the-world adventure film alive with the master’s surrealist gestures and subversive attitude. The star-studded cast includes Simone Signoret and Michel Piccoli.

    THE CREATURES

    Agnès Varda France, 1966

    Agnès Varda returns to the topic of marriage a year after Le bonheur in this kooky and inspired science-fiction romance. Starring French cinema legends Michel Piccoli and Catherine Deneuve and shot in black and white with expressive tints of color, it proves Varda is a magician of the unexpected.
