Film 3: The King of Hearts (1967) Zoom
Discussion to start: 7:00 PM
Infamous for its massive destruction and death, we look back on WWI and wonder how the world could have fallen so deeply into such horrific violence. This truly poignant comedy pushes the question further- who exactly is sane and who is really deranged? A British soldier is sent to a small town in France to defuse a bomb planted by retreating German troops. While many of the villagers have evacuated, those living in a local asylum celebrate his coming and their own liberation in surrealistic scenes reminiscent of Fellini. Released at the height of the Vietnam War, The King of Hearts has become a cult classic. Alan Bates, Geneviève Bujold, Pierre Brasseur, and Françoise Christophe star.
