Three must-see films to watch for free on Arte.TV in December 2021

Discover the Monty Python, Christophe Honoré and a great Turkish filmmaker.

The first madness of the Monty Python (1971) – by Ian MacNaughton – available until 05/31/2022

Certainly the easiest way to discover or rediscover the famous British mad gang. Also known as Pataquesse, this film is actually an anthology of the favorite sketches played by the Monthy Python during the days of Flying circus. Old sketches but rewritten, replayed and rearranged by the entire team: Terry Gilliam, Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin. Yes sir !

Please, love and run fast (2018) – by Christophe Honoré – available until 12/30/2021

Crowned with the 2018 Louis-Delluc Prize, it is often considered the most beautiful film by the French director. An intense, moving work without pathos, which brings to life the ghosts and shadows of the “AIDS years”, in the vein of the powerful 120 beats per minute by Robin Campillo. A love story between a writer condemned by the virus and a student. A sumptuous melody, selected in Cannes and worn by Pierre Deladonchamps and Vincent Lacoste.

Winter sleep (2014) – by Nuri Bilge Ceylan – available until 05/31/2022

After Once upon a time in Anatolia, the Turkish filmmaker brings us back to the region for a stunning reinterpretation of Chekhov in the lunar landscapes of Cappadocia. A profound story about human fragility, crowned by the Palme d’Or at the Cannes film festival.
