"Pearls of the Crown"
Directed by Sacha Guitry/Christian Jacque
A groundbreaking film with a sharp, satirical
underpinning directed by Sacha Guitry and Christian Jacque has Guitry
performing four separate roles, stretched out over four centuries, each
character feverishly in pursuit of the four pear-shaped pearls aligning the
English royal crown. "It is an amazing and weirdly fascinating condensation
of fact and fiction" (Stage). Featuring Jacqueline Delubac, Lyn
Harding and Jean Louis Barrault. English, French and Italian with English
subtitles. 121 minutes.
