Three great French films to watch for free on Arte.TV in November 2021

The first Arnaud Desplechin, Raoul Ruiz at Proust and anticipation à la Bertrand Tavernier.

The Sentinel (1992) – by Arnaud Desplechin – available until 04/30/2022

From his first feature film, Arnaud Desplechin imposes his style of subjugating beauty. Mixing several levels of story and mixing genres with astonishing dexterity, he attempts an innovative cinema, hailed in Cannes and by three César nominations.

Recovered time (1999) – by Raoul Ruiz – available until 04/30/2022

The Franco-Chilean filmmaker adapts Marcel Proust in a great costume film, selected at the Cannes Film Festival. A look full of nostalgia on the life of the writer whose work and characters from reality blend with those from fiction. A bewitching drama carried by a breathtaking female cast, from Catherine Deneuve to Emmanuelle Béart, via Chiara Mastroianni.

Death Live (1980) – by Bertrand Tavernier – available until 04/30/2022

Reality TV denounced before its time! Romy Schneider and Harvey Keitel are reunited in a tragic love story between a dying woman and the man who films her without her knowing it, for a television show. A visionary work of anticipation, five times nominated for the César. And you will meet a very young Robbie Coltrane (future Hagrid of the saga Harry potter), in her very first movie role.
