Tribute to Jean-Paul Belmondo (1933-2021)

Jean-Paul Belmondo passed away on September 6th, aged 88. The face of the French “New Wave,” he was also one of France's biggest box-office stars. Nicknamed “Bébel” by French audiences, he starred in more than 80 movies spanning 50 years, including masterpieces by famous directors such as Jean-Luc Godard, François Truffaut, Claude Lelouch, or Jean-Pierre Melville. His attractive yet unusual looks even inspired comic book characters like Blueberry in France or Cobra in Japan. His loss is a real hit to French culture.

As a tribute to Jean-Paul Belmondo, AFHK is organizing two special ciné-club screenings.

1. La Sirène de Mississipi : 30 September, Thurs 7pm
2. Pierrot le fou : 7 October, Thurs 7pm

English title:
Mississippi Mermaid
Director: François Truffaut
Duration: 2h03

Louis (Jean-Paul Belmondo) owns a tobacco plantation and cigarette factory on Réunion Island, but it's lonely work — so he sends away for a mail-order bride. Much to his surprise, the beautiful young Julie Roussel (Catherine Deneuve) arrives by ship, looking nothing like the picture he had received by mail. Louis quickly falls for Julie, while discovering that she is decidedly not the woman with whom he had been corresponding.
