Invitation to Daniel Auteuil

An indisputable giant of French cinema, Daniel Auteuil continues the trajectory of his ultra-long career, punctuated by a multitude of awards and popular successes.  A cinema director (including film adaptations of Marcel Pagnol’s work) and a man of the theater, he will speak of his rich experience of the cinema and will introduce, as a premiere, his new film, La Belle époque by Nicolas Bedos. He will also present a musical show in homage to Paul-Jean Toulet, entitled Déjeuner en l’air.
