Drugstore Romance

No upcoming showtimes scheduled.
Director: Paul Vecchiali
1979 / 126min / DCP

“A working-class neighborhood melodrama in which a pharmacist (played by perennial Vecchiali muse Hélène Surgère) becomes the amour fou object for a much younger mechanic (Nicolas Silberg). Dedicated to the great Jean Grémillon, this film is perhaps the most striking example of how Vecchiali and Diagonale synthesized the poetic realism of ’30s studio films with independent production and a modernist mise en scène.”—Series curators Bingham Bryant and Graham Carter
