Gérard Depardieu – Through the years
In this semester’s movie classe, we will explore 3 of Depardieu films. Having appeared in 170 films, Depardieu is one of the most iconic figures in film history.
Join us on Tuesday, November 10th from 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at the Dana Center at Saint Anselm College. The film is preceded by a brief presentation of key concepts and followed by group discussion of how the film relates to the theme. The film is in French with English subtitles. Presentations and discussion is in English.
A return to the dramatic theater, this 2010 film shows Depardieu’s recent work. Serge Pilardosse (Depardieu), retires from the job he has held for many years, as a slaughterhouse worker in Lyon. Once home, he becomes all to quickly restless and realizes that being retired is kind of boring. With missing papers jeopardizing his retirement pension, he sets off across the country to recover the papers and, in the process, to rediscover himself.
