Mathieu Amalric: in front & behind the camera

MUBI Special

The Blue Room

Mathieu Amalric France, 2014

Our Amalric focus culminates with this puzzlebox neo-noir in which his filmmaking is every bit as enthralling as his performance. We hand you the keys to The Blue Room, a spiral of passion, secrets & murder brilliantly adapted to the screen from Simenon’s eponymous novel. A MUBI exclusive release!

Sans rires

Mathieu Amalric France, 1990

It shouldn’t be a secret by now that Mathieu Amalric is a remarkable talent both behind & in front of the camera. Sans Rires (Without Laughs) is his directorial debut, a rare piece of filmmaking we are delighted to unearth, and an intimate and melancholic look at the effects of the passage of time.

Heartbeat Detector

Nicolas Klotz France, 2007

Our next favorite performance by Mathieu Amalric (who both acts in and directs the psycho-thriller The Blue Room, coming soon), is in this unforgettable mystery. Through an audacious style and Amalric’s brilliance, it ambitiously connects corporate intrigue to questions plaguing Europe after WWII.

Jimmy P: Psychotherapy of a Plains Indian

Arnaud Desplechin United States, 2013

We’re paying homage to great actor Mathieu Amalric’s work before showing his thrilling new movie The Blue Room. His long collaboration with Arnaud Desplechin deepened even further when the two travelled to America to create this lovely character portrait of a unique cross-cultural friendship.
