May Fools (Milou En Mai) (1990) 107min
Wed, Sep 27 at 4:30, 6:50, 9:15pm
Directed by Louis Malle
With Michel Piccoli, Miou-Miou
One of Malle’s last films, and a return to the examination of class from his earlier work. Piccoli plays the patriarch of a family who is mourning the death of his mother when the rest of the family arrives to bicker over the estate. Set against the May 68 riots, Malle and Carrière’s script has a fair mix of black humor and genuine affection for the flawed characters.
