After Harmony Korine’s Gummo this Tuesday, the Austrian Filmmuseum presents another selection of great films. Starting from December 27 everyday a Bunuel and a Marx Brothers film will be screened. Amongst them (and it’s really hard to pic just one each) we would recommend Belle de jour, which won the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival in 1967 and is an all time classic starring Catherine Deneuve as a married woman who lives out her masochistic fantasies as a prostitute without her husband knowing. We would also encourage you to see Duck Soup, the 1933 Marx Brothers classic which is not only referenced in countless TV-shows and movies, it features THE mirror-scene and is perhaps one of the most important films about war ever made. Possibly.
Make sure you see them at Filmmuseum between Christmas and New Year.
