Thursday Nights at the Cinematheque

A Retrospective of the films of Francois Truffaut

The Last Metro  (Le dernier metro)  (1980, 131 mins.) 

Gerard Depardieu and Catherine Deneuve star as members of a French theater company living under the German occupation during World War II in Truffaut's gripping, humanist character study. Against all odds -- a Jewish theater manager in hiding; a leading man who's in the Resistance; increasingly restrictive Nazi oversight -- the troupe believes the show must go on. Equal parts romance, historical tragedy, and even comedy, The Last Metro is Truffaut's ultimate tribute to art overcoming adversity.

The Department of Psychology presents their 2012 Brown Bag Series with Jesse Graham, Department of Psychology at USC.

Ideological Conflicts as Opposing Moral Visions

Why do our moral convictions feel like objective truth, and yet differ so greatly across individuals and cultures?  How do shared ideological narratives influence our sense of right and wrong, and how do our moral convictions influence our political choices?  This talk will explore these questions with an investigation of the interactions between morality and ideology.

This event is scheduled for December 7, 2012, 12:00 to 1:00 p.m. in Sierra Hall 322.

Thursday Nights at the Cinematheque

A Retrospective of the films of Francois Truffaut

Confidentially Yours (Vivement dimanche!)  (1983, 110 mins.) 

In this light but nearly faultless homage to the classic film noir thriller, Truffaut showcases one of his favorite actresses, Fanny Ardant, as Barbara, an enterprising secretary in love with her boss (Jean-Louis Trintignant) but up against clearing him of murder. To resolve the mystery and reveal the real killer, she has no choice but to betray the man she loves. Truffaut's final film, Confidentially Yours is an enduring expression of the director's long fascination with the American cinema.
