La Belle Noiseuse

Directed by Jacques Rivette

Year: 1991
Running Time: 240 minutes
Country: France
Language: French (English subtitles)

The Grand Prix winner at the 1991 Cannes Film Festival, LA BELLE NOISSEUSE (aka THE BEAUTIFUL TROUBLEMAKER) is legendary French New Wave director Jacques Rivette’s intimately epic exploration of the convergence between artistry and eroticism. Edouard Frenhofer (Michel Piccoli) is a reclusive painter living in the French countryside with his wife (French cultural icon Jane Birkin). Their lives are radically upended with the arrival of a younger artist (David Bursztein) and his girlfriend (Emmanuel Béart), who becomes the muse that awakens Edouard’s fading passions. Rivette creates a layered character study, while also offering an immersive meditation on the creative process.

Please note: We are currently experiencing issues with the Kino Now application on Apple TVs that have updated to the new tvOS 14 operating system. While we work to fix this, please scroll down to the FAQ to read about other ways you can watch Kino Marquee films.
 
FIAF Virtual CinéSalon (September 8 – October 5, 2020)
Michel Piccoli… Tenderly, Tragically, Totally 


One of the most esteemed and versatile actors of his generation, Michel Piccoli inhabited a wide range of memorable characters etching an indelible impression across the seven decades of cinema in France and beyond. Over the course of his career, he imbued tenderness, passion, and dedication in roles as varied as popes, cops, artists, and ordinary men. 

To commemorate Piccoli who died this May at the age of 94, FIAF will present a small retrospective of his work, showcasing the gravity and humor, cynicism and humanity he brought to roles in films by Claude Sautet, Alain Resnais, Leos Carax, and Jacques Rivette. 

Every Tuesday in September, a film will be posted online and will remain available to stream for one week. Films will be free to stream for FIAF Members and available for a small fee for Non-Members. View film selection at fiaf.org.

Kino Marquee is a new initiative that creates "virtual cinemas" for temporarily closed independent theaters. It lets audiences see at home newly released films that these theaters would otherwise be playing on the big screen, and which are not yet available on other digital platforms. 

Join us in supporting your community's theater in these uncertain times by buying a virtual “ticket” to watch award-winning international films, acclaimed documentaries, and restored classics on Kino Marquee. You’ll be directly supporting your local art house as all revenue is being shared between distributor and exhibitor just as if you bought your ticket at the theater's box office.

To get your ticket, click the Screen button above. You’ll have to register for an account if you don’t already have one. After you’ve entered your payment information, your rental period will start immediately and last for five days. You can watch the film as many times as you want in those five days.

You can watch on your computer, phone, or most tablets. You can also download the Kino Now app for Roku, Amazon Fire Stick, or Apple TV (tvOS 9.0 or later). See below for more detailed information about app-based viewing options. All viewing methods require high bandwidth internet connection.
