Our next Film Night is 'The Reckoning' [1969].

Time: 7.30pm [doors open at 7pm]
Date: 9th December
Tickets: FREE!

"A contemporary and penetrating social drama about a ruthless business executive who returns home to his Liverpudlian roots to investigate his father’s death. Nicol Williamson produces an intense and compelling performance as the reprehensible hero conflicted by his old and new lifestyles – the high-powered London business world he has entered with his middle class life and the working class streets of Liverpool where he came from and which draws him back. This brutal drama about class in Britain was a contemporary production with Up The Junction and Room At The Top and it also preceded Get Carter, but it was in many ways more original and credible."

Our next Film Night is the neo-realist Italian film, Umberto D [1952]. Most of the actors were non-professional, including Carlo Battisti, who plays the title role of Umberto Domenico Ferrari, a poor old man in Rome desperately trying to keep his room. His landlady (Lina Gennari) is evicting him, and his only true friends, the housemaid (Maria-Pia Casilio) and his dog Flike (called 'Flag' in some subtitled versions of the film) are of no help. The movie was included in "Time Magazine's All-Time 100 Movies" in 2005.

It is a wonderful film, Chris. Everyone who came really enjoyed it. Not the most upbeat of pictures though. The scene at end in which Umberto almost kills himself and his dog had most of the audience flinching.

Our next Film Night is Tuesday 24th February. We'll be showing a Norman Wisdom picture called 'What's Good For The Goose' [1969]. This film is quite a curiosity as it's quite different to a usual Norman Wisdom film. He plays a 50-something assistant bank manager called Timothy Bartlett whose marriage has become lacklustre. When he goes to a banker's conference in a coastal town he meets a fun-loving female student called Nikki (Sally Geeson) with whom he has a brief affair and abandons his work responsibilities to have a perfect day with her having fun taking in all the seaside attractions and recapturing his youthful energy.
It is one of the few films set in Southport and includes some fascinating shots of the resort in the 1960s. It also includes a few scenes of a more adult nature. Although a curiosity, it's also a good film in its own right. It will make for a very enjoyable evening. This also concludes our 'On Merseyside' season.

Our next film is The 400 Blows (French: Les Quatre Cents Coups) is a 1959 French drama film, the debut by director François Truffaut; it stars Jean-Pierre Léaud, Albert Rémy, and Claire Maurier. One of the defining films of the French New Wave, it displays many of the characteristic traits of the movement. Filmed on location in Paris and Honfleur, it is the first in a series of five films in which Léaud plays the semi-autobiographical character.

13-year-old Antoine (Jean-Pierre Léaud) can't seem to do anything right. His dysfunctional parents yell at him, his spiteful schoolteacher picks on him and luck just never goes his way. Despite his efforts at patience, one day it all becomes too much and Antoine throws in the towel, choosing to take his chances on the Paris streets.

Next week's Film Night:

'Hell Is a City' is a 1960 film based on the novel by Maurice Procter. It was made by British studio Hammer Film Productions filmed in Manchester it was also written and directed by Val Guest. It was partly inspired by the British New Wave films.
Committed but seen-it-all police Inspector Martineau [Stanley Baker] rightly guesses that after a violent jailbreak a local criminal will head home to Manchester to pick up the spoils from his last job. Martineau is soon investigating a murder during a street robbery which seems to lead back to the same villain. Concentrating on the case and using his local contacts to try to track the gang down, he is aware he is not keeping his own personal life together as well as he might.

Our next Film Night tomorrow:

Breathless (French: À bout de souffle; "out of breath") is a 1960 French film written and directed by Jean-Luc Godard about a wandering criminal (Jean-Paul Belmondo) and his American girlfriend (Jean Seberg). It was Godard's first feature-length work and represented Belmondo's breakthrough as an actor.

Breathless was one of the earliest, most influential examples of the French New Wave (nouvelle vague). Together with François Truffaut's The 400 Blows and Alain Resnais's Hiroshima, Mon Amour, both released a year earlier, it brought international acclaim to this new style of French filmmaking. At the time, the film attracted much attention for its bold visual style and the innovative use of jump cuts.
