The Other French New Wave Vol. 1 BR

The Cat In The Sack (Le Chat Dans Le Sac) (1964)Dissatisfied young journalist Claude (Claude Godbout) was weary of everything, from a modern society he couldn't change nor accept to the shallowness of his career-fixated actress girlfriend Barbara (Barbara Ulrich). Abandoning their Montreal apartment for a cabin in Quebec's wilderness, the distance might not bring him the answers he seeks. Groundbreaking opus from Gilles Groulx, featuring a score from John Coltrane, also stars Véronique Vilbert, Jean-Paul Bernier. 74 min. In French with English subtitles. BW/Rtg: NR The Merry World Of Leopold Z (La Vie Heureuse de Léopold Z) (1965)It was a snowy Christmas Eve in Montreal, and rather than concentrating on the streets, put-upon plow driver Léopold Z. Tremblay (Guy L'Ecuyer) was looking to score a loan for his last-minute shopping, overspending on his wife, trying to reconnect with an old girlfriend-and still get to midnight Mass on time. Amiable debut feature from Gilles Carle-converted from a National Film Board-commissioned documentary-also stars Paul Hébert, Monique Joly, Suzanne Valéry. 68 min. In French with English subtitles. BW/Rtg: NR YUL 871 (Montreal Flight 871) (1966)Having arrived in Montreal from Paris on a weekend's business trip, a Jewish-Romanian engineer (Charles Denner) finds the city providing no shortage of distractions, from a passionate fling to obtaining insights into his parents' disappearance in the tumult of World War II.
