Indiana University Cinema

La Belle Noiseuse (The Beautiful Troublemaker)
(1991, 3 hr., 58 min., Not Rated. French with English subtitles)
Directed by Jacques Rivette

1 p.m.
IU Cinema

Loosely based on Honoré de Balzac‘s short story Le Chef-d’oeuvre inconnu (The Unknown Masterpiece), Rivette’s film explores fictional artist Frenhofer’s creative rebirth with the arrival of a new muse and the subsequent disruption for everyone involved. Considered a masterpiece of French New Wave cinema, La Belle Noiseuse is frequently listed as one of the best films ever made about art and artists.

Due to the length of the film, there is an earlier start time and no additional pre-screening or post-screening program.

This event is free but ticketed. To acquire advanced tickets please visit the IU Cinema’s website.

Art and a Movie is sponsored in part by Marsha R. Bradford and Harold A. Dumes.
