13 Days in France
Directed by Claude Lelouch and François Reichenbach • 1968 • France
13 DAYS IN FRANCE, a personal project for French filmmaker Claude Lelouch, approaches the X Olympic Winter Games in a radical way, ignoring certain disciplines and dwelling on others. This impressionistic kaleidoscope of a movie manages to be both freewheeling and intimate. Under the direction of Lelouch and François Reichenbach, 13 DAYS IN FRANCE pulses with the insouciant spirit of the sixties and the carefree cinematography and editing pioneered by the French New Wave.
