Desplechin Double Bill

MUBI Special

My Sex Life... or How I Got Into an Argument

Arnaud Desplechin France, 1996

Next in our Desplechin double feature is an epic dark comedy—praised as “sublimely wayward” by the New York Times—that’s as rich in its observations as it is funny. Boasting an all-star cast and dovetailing into his Cannes 2015 My Golden Days, this is one of the very best French films of the 90s.

La sentinelle

Arnaud Desplechin France, 1992

With Ismael’s Ghosts opening this year’s Cannes and My Golden Days soon to be released in the UK, Arnaud Desplechin is now widely praised as one of contemporary cinema’s best directors. We’re dedicating a double bill to his work, starting with his second film, a clever take on Cold War thrillers.
