Últimos coletazos del verano (1)

Como algunos ya sabéis, buena parte de este verano la he dedicado a la creación de un blog de cine online. Aunque os recomendaría cada una de sus películas, yo destacaría por su ambición los dos últimos empeños. Me refiero
  • al ciclo dedicado a la animadora germano-inglesa Lotte Reiniger, de la que colgado 22 cortometrajes, y
  • al ciclo de cine nazi, con unos cincuenta títulos entre cortos y largos, documentales y películas.

De este último hice este cuadro sinóptico, adaptado de la Wikipedia, que enlaza a las películas recogidas en el blog.

Claude Chabrol, in memoriam

Ayer mientras leía mi TL de Twitter (cómo no), me llegó la noticia: Claude Chabrol, uno de mis directores franceses preferido, había muerto.

Tenía pensado publicar este vídeo en Sesión continua cuando pudiera dedicar un ciclo a la Nouvelle Vague, movimiento al que pertenecía Chabrol junto a Rohmer, Godard, Varda, Rivette, Truffaut.

Es largo (1h 34') y está en francés sin subtítulos, pero creo que merece la pena.
