In an unfashionable Paris apartment, a pianist and his wife quarrel over a missing waistcoat and a shortened evening dress as they prepare for an upcoming recital in Becker’s delightfully airy, Lubitsch-like portrait of love and life in a slowly modernizing urban France.

The Middle of the World

Film - Feature | July 29 | 7-8:30 p.m. |  Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive

 Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive

The Middle of the World describes a love affair between Paul, a Swiss engineer running for political office, and Adriana, an Italian immigrant working as a waitress. This cool, highly erotic, teasingly ambiguous film is one of the few convincing, truly modern treatises on love, one not divorced from the contexts of politics, class, and geography.
