Les Belles Images is a 1966 novel by the French author and philosopher Simone de Beauvoir.
Les Belles Images describes the bourgeois society of the 1960s. The characters hold glamorous positions with high incomes. Their concern is no longer focused on how to create a better and fair world, but on how best to display their wealth.
In other words: how to present “beautiful images.”

CINE CLUB – Wednesday November 29th
TRIBUTE TO JEAN ROCHEFORT
Moved by the difficulties faced by peasants living in the swamplands near Lyon, aristocratic engineer Marquis Grégoire Ponceludon de Malavoy devises a plan to drain the boggy land. But to gain an audience with King Louis XVI in Versailles, he learns he must impress the royal court with his verbal wit. Drawn into a world of ever-shifting alliances where words are used as weapons, the Marquis begins to lose sight of his noble intentions.
Directed by Patrice Leconte and thanks to the actors Jean Rochefort and Fanny Ardant, this movie is a French classic film.
Presented in French with English subtitles
A discussion will follow the film. Refreshments provided!
