In late spring, 1890, Vincent moves to Auvers-sur-Oise, which is located near Paris. He is there under the care of Dr. Gachet and living in a humble inn. Fewer than 70 days later, Vincent is dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Vincent works on his painting, including his landscapes and portraits. His brother Theo, wife Johanna, and their baby visit Auvers. Vincent is playful and charming. Vincent engages the attentions of Gachet's daughter Marguerite, a young maid at the inn, a Parisian prostitute named Cathy, and even Johanna. Shortly before his death, Vincent visits Paris, quarrels with Theo, disparages his own art and accomplishments, dances at a brothel, and is warm then cold toward Marguerite

François Fournier is a troubled ten-year-old who has been in foster care since he was four. But his is a "temporary placement," meaning that his parents can come back for him any time. They never do. The story begins with François being shuffled from one foster home to another, as his insecurity leads him to engage in increasingly destructive behavior. He is placed with an older couple named Thierry, the newest addition to a ménage that includes Mrs. Thierry's mother, a very young girl, and a high-school age boy. They aren't afraid to share their lives with this new houseguest, and the impressionable boy seems to be settling down. For François, things just are what they are--and he's usually "temporary." A fascinating portrait of childhood, which is also an indictment of a failing social system

"Jean (Jean Yanne) and Catherine (Marlène Jobert) are a couple whose every move charts an advancement deeper into an emotional warzone. Theirs is the classic and the tragic case of an emotional abuse centred around a perplexing, but powerful, interdependency. As the moment approaches wherein the relationship can no longer perpetuate its cycle of weekend holidays, apologies, and submissions, Maurice Pialat discloses all the ways in which the future might be at once liberated, and enslaved, by the past"--Container

Addresses the torrent of spiritual and intellectual turmoil unloosed among the denizens of a little country parish. It is a film by turns calm and violent, buoyant upon the tears of mercy and gurgling with the blood of the Lamb. Gérard Depardieu (Loulou, Le Garçu) is the self-abasing curate tortured by questions about his role in God's plan--before an encounter with a material Satan touches off a powerful revelation. At the crux of his vision is Sandrine Bonnaire, the madly profligate sylph whose fate ruptures in a blast of gunpowder and the slash of a razor. As events unfurl, Maurice Pialat himself provides witness as the seasoned cleric who pronounces the words: "God wears us down."
