Mumbai, April 2nd, 2009: This April treat yourself to the best in cinema from around the world as NDTV Lumière and their on-air property “Masterclass” give you more reasons to stay home. Masterclass is an exceptional initiative on television for all you cinema aficionados out there. Masterclass will showcase creations of one iconic filmmaker who have made their mark on the map of international cinema. The whole of April, Masterclass will feature films by Master Director Louis Mall. So get equipped with the finest films right in your living rooms, every Saturday at 3.00 p.m. only on NDTV Lumière.
Louis Malle was born on 30 October 1932 into a wealthy industrialist family in Thumeries, France. He began his film career as the co-director and cameraman to Jacques Cousteau on the Academy Award and Palme d’Or-winning documentary The Silent World (1956) and assisted Robert Bresson on A Man Escaped before making his first feature, Elevator To The Gallows in 1957. Malle’s second film, The Lovers (1958) broke taboos against on-screen eroticism. He was voted the 40th Greatest Director of all time by Entertainment Weekly. Louis Malle died on 23 November, 1995.
This Saturday, 4th of April, watch out for “The Lovers’, a story about an affluent and restless French woman named Jeanne (Jeanne Moreau). Bored with her husband and her polo-playing lover, Jeanne develops a love affair with a passing stranger (Jean-Marc Bory) that changes her life forever. Winner of Special Jury Prize at the 1958 Venice Film Festival, “The Lovers’ will air this Saturday at 3 p.m. only on NDTV Lumière. That’s not all, on 11th of April we have “Murmur Of The Heart’ while “The Fire within’ and “Zazie In The Metro’ will air on the 18th and 25th of April respectively. So make your date with Masterclass. -Sampurn Media
