A movie festival featuring French director Jean Eustache will be held Oct. 3-31 at L'Institut franco-japonais de Tokyo (Tokyo Nichifutsu Gakuin).

Among renowned French directors, Eustache is the only one with a proletariat background. He is best known for his 1973 film "La Maman et la putain (Mother and the Whore)," which won the Grand Prix and the International Critics Award at Cannes.

Eustache was born in 1938 and committed suicide in 1981.

The movies to be shown at "Tout Eustache" are:

"Les Mauvaises frequentations" and "Le Pere Noel a les yeux bleus" (both with Japanese subtitles) at 6:30 p.m. on Oct. 3; "Numero Zero" (English subtitles planned), 2:30 p.m. on Oct. 4 and 6:30 p.m. on Oct. 10; "Une sale histoire 1. Volet (fiction)" and "Une sale histoire 2. Volet (document)" (both subtitled in Japanese) from 2:30 p.m. on Oct. 5 and Oct. 18; "La Rosiere de Pessac, (I) et (II)" from 2:30 on Oct. 11; "Le Cochon" and "Offre d'emploi" from 2:30 p.m. on Oct. 12 and 17; "Le Jardin des delices de Jerome Bosch" and "Les Photos d'Alix" (both subtitled in Japanese) from 2:30 p.m. on Oct. 19; "La Maman et la putain" (Japanese subtitles) from 6:30 p.m. on Oct. 24 and 2:30 p.m. on Oct. 25; "Mes petite amoureuses" (Japanese subtitles) from 2:30 p.m. on Oct. 26 and from 6:30 p.m. on Oct. 31.

The entrance fee is 1,000 yen.

Emmanuel Burdeau, an expert on Eustache, will speak after the showing on Oct. 10 and hold a discussion session after the showings on Oct. 11 and 12.

The institute is about a seven-minute walk from the west exit of JR Iidabashi Station and the B3 and B2a exits of Iidabashi subway station (walk toward Ichigaya along Sotobori-dori and turn right at Cosmo gas station.)
