Jean-Pierre Léaud, from Antoine Doinel to Louis XIV

Jean-Pierre Léaud is to the French New Wave what Anna Magnani was to Italian Neorealism and what John Wayne was to American westerns: its spirit, its emblem, its avatar. On the occasion of the release of Albert Serra’s The Death of Louis XIV (NYFF54), the Film Society is proud to pay tribute to the prolific actor’s irresistible presence and undeniable legacy.
