Golden Eighties

A classy cast (Delphine Seyrig, Charles Denner, Lio, Fanny Cottençon) sings its way through a bouncy romantic musical set in a Brussels shopping mall. This 2K restoration by the Belgian Royal Cinémathèque gives new life to one of the late Chantal Akerman’s most vibrant films, a tribute to MGM dance movies and Jacques Demy musicals, but with a sly postmodern edge.

‘With canny cinematic references, [Akerman] evokes a post-ideological age of practical business and cultivated optimism balanced blithely between catastrophe and apocalypse’ – The New Yorker 

Presented in collaboration with Cinema Reborn
