FILMS ON THE GREEN: Free screening of Renoir's ELENA AND HER MEN this Friday at Riverside Park

" In this delightful film [...], Jean’s capture an aspect of my mother I adored and often was not put forward in other films: her vivaciousness, the sparkle in her eye, her playfulness. Jean was an incredible kind and sensitive man."
- Isabella Rossellini

ELENA AND HER MEN (Elena et les hommes)
Directed by Jean Renoir
With Ingrid Bergman, Jean Marais, Mel Ferrer, Juliette Gréco
1956 | Comedy-Romance | 1h35 | France | Janus Films

In a pre-WWI Paris, Elena is a beautiful, but impoverished, Polish princess who drives men crazy. When a famous general falls for her charms, Elena finds herself entangled in both romantic intrigue and political conspiracy—with the hearts of several men, and the future of France, in her hands.

Preceded by
THE TRIP TO THE MOON (Le Voyage dans la lune)
Directed by Georges Méliès (1902, 14min) | INSTITUT FRANÇAIS

"George Méliès’ special effects might seem nowadays naïf, but they still have the power of making me dream and transport me in a playful, fantastic world."
- Isabella Rosselini

DATE: Friday July 28, 2017 at 8:30pm

LOCATION: Riverside Park Pier I (at 70th street)
