Celluloid Dreams The Directors Label

   

French director Laurent Cantet burst onto the international scene with The Sanguinaires. It sees him holding a microscope to human relationships, shot with a formal, stark beauty and a fierce intelligence, a signature that follows in all of the films in this collection.

Focusing on the family as a springboard for larger social structures is his following film Human Resources, where the workplace unwittingly forces a father and son against each other. The New York Times said of the film, “One of those rare films in which human feelings are as crucial as ideology”. For his next film Time Out Cantet delivered a gripping emotional thriller. Heading South starring Charlotte Rampling is a sensual and revealing study of women. This collection offers the complete filmography of this committed director to date.
