Claude Sautet: Calm and Dissonance
Directed by: Amine Mestari
Written by: Amine Mestari and Thomas Boujut
From The Things of Life to César and Rosalie, from Vincent François Paul and the Others to
Nelly and Mr. Arnaud, Claude Sautet’s cinema is part of our lives. A complex character with
assumed paradoxes, his films were like him. Claude Sautet filmed the flaws of his
contemporaries as self-portraits that allowed him to “keep calm in the face of dissonance”.
