Your Night With Trintignant: This Week on Hulu

Jean-Louis Trintignant once said, "I’ve spent so many decades only making movies. There’s so much that I still want to do. Like, live. It’s only up to me." And after beginning his career in the mid-1950s, the iconic French actor has led some of cinema’s most remarkable films of the last half-century, from Bertoluci’s The Conformist to Kieslowski’s Three Color’s: Red to this year’s brutally heartbreaking story of love’s endurance, Michael Haneke’s Amour.

With a 14 year gap between Red and Amour, we were more thrilled than ever to see another subtly killer performance from Trintignant, who still has the ability to captivate an audience with distinct style that goes from cerebral and stoic and wildly neurotic seamlessly. And this week, the Criterion Collection has made all of their Trintignant-centric films available free to watch. So whether you’re not familiar with the work of the internationally-acclaimed actor of stage and screen or simply understand that there’s never enough Trintignant, peruse our list of films available to watch and carve out some time to enjoy these sensational classics.

Watch the Trailer for Bernardo Bertolucci’s New Film ‘Me & You’

After beginning his career more than fifty years ago, Bernardo Bertolucci has been making films that are as psychologically thrilling as they are visually rich. The Italian director best known for The Conformist, Last Tango in Paris, The Last Emperor, and his most-recent sexually-charged study The Dreamers, is now back after a nine year feature hiatus with the drama Me & You

The film premiered last Spring at Cannes to a mixed reception and has yet to find US distribution. However, a trailer for the film has now arrived and here we see an enigmatic look at the intimate story sans dialogue but with plenty of emotion. Me & You, which stars Jacaopo Olmo Antnori and Tea Falco, tells the story of a 14-year old boy who tells his family he’s gone on a class skiing trip but really hides away in a vacant basement. His 25-year old half-sister, a junkie, shows up to said basement looking to detox, and from there their story unfolds through a series of arguments and bonding. 

Check out the trailer below.
