Comedies by Buster, Charlie and Pierre

Pierre Étaix is a French comedy master in the tradition of Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin and also in the tradition of Jacques Tati with whom Étaix served a comedic apprenticeship. Étaix’s films went unseen for years due to legal entanglements but his unique genius has recently been ‘rediscovered’ .We are delighted present a programme of Étaix’s most successful films – including the Oscar-winning Happy Anniversary, alongside those of his heroes, Keaton and Chaplin.
