A celebration of cinema at one hundred years of age, this broad and whimsical comedy stars screen legend Michel Piccoli as cinema-in-human-form who seeks to recreate iconic moments from the history of the medium as a form of remembrance. Featuring myriad vignettes full of utter charm and hilarity, stars of the current moment (including Catherine Deneuve, Jeanne Moreau, Sandrine Bonnaire, Alain Delon, Hanna Schygulla, Robert De Niro, and Harrison Ford) re-create the scenarios of yore in Varda’s utterly charming happy-birthday to cinema.

Genres: Comedy, Fantasy
