The Films of Catherine Breillat at the MFA

The Museum of Fine Arts pays tribute to the work of Catherine Breillat, one of France’s most inventive and daring French auteurs, whose movies freely explore such controversial themes as borderline sexualities, physical disability, sibling rivalry or gender conflicts. From her 1976 debut film Real Young Girls (which was banned until 1999) to her latest semi-autobiographical creation Abuse of Weakness , Breillat offers an intelligent, innovative and uncompromising cinema that has earned her critical success in France and abroad.

Nine of her films will be shown at the MFA from December 3 to 21. All films are in French with English subtitles. For further information, please click here.
