Fun Fridays – Directors Top Films – Catherine Breillat

Hi Film folk!

Paris-based filmmaker and best-selling author Catherine Breillat is known for extremely personal, emotional, often provocative stories, centered around sexuality, gender trouble and sibling rivalry.  

Before her own award-winning films (Fat Girl, Brief Crossing), Catherine collected a string of successes with her novels and screenplays – including Police and A Real Young Girl.

What films inspired Madame Breillat? She hails Bergman’s Winter Light as being the main reason why she became a Director, but here’s a list of  other claimed favourites:

1. Ai No Corrida (Oshima, 1976)

2. Sawdust and Tinsel (Bergman, 1953)

3. Baby Doll (Kazan, 1956)

4. Lost Highway (Lynch, 1996)

5. Vertigo (Hitchcock, 1958)

6. Salo (Pasolini, 1975)

7. L’Avventura (Antonioni, 1960)

8. Ordet (Dreyer, 1955)
