    LITTLE FELLAS

    JACQUES DOILLON France, 1999

    Filmed through a documentary approach and with nonprofessional actors, Jacques Doillon worked with teens from the impoverished suburbs of Paris to tell the story of a challenging childhood. A fiction ingrained in the real lives of its actors, Little Fellas resonates through its raw truthfulness.

    RODIN

    JACQUES DOILLON France, 2017

    Sculpting has rarely been as sexy as in Jacques Doillon’s vigorous and sensual portrait of French maestro Auguste Rodin. Premiering at Cannes, Vincent Lindon plays the artist with intense fervor, taking us through various points in Rodin’s life to reveal his passion in both art and love.

    THE TEMPTATION OF ISABELLE

    JACQUES DOILLON France, 1985

    In Jacques Doillon’s abrasive melodrama, an encounter between two couples takes tragic proportions as the quartet of lovers play with burning jealousy and possessive desire. The vampiristic and self-destructive impulses of love are explored with piercing honesty and through impassioned performances.
