The theatre is the classroom 
The screen is the blackboard 
The teacher has left, 
we’re all that we have

This week's lesson explores:

The Fire Within (Le feu follet)
1963, dir. Louis Malle
with Maurice Ronet, Jeanne Moreau, Alexandra Stewart

Louis Malle offers a stark and unsparing look at the depths of depression through Alain (Maurice Ronet), a recovering alcoholic writer who decides to put an end to his unbearable inner turmoil and kill himself -- but not before seeking out his old friends and lovers in Paris. An early masterstroke by the prolific Malle featuring the music of Erik Satie.
