"Hypnotically beautiful." - The New York Times

The Grand Prix winner at the 1991 Cannes Film Festival, LA BELLE NOISSEUSE (aka THE BEAUTIFUL TROUBLEMAKER) is legendary French New Wave director Jacques Rivette’s intimately epic exploration of the convergence between artistry and eroticism. Edouard Frenhofer (Michel Piccoli) is a reclusive painter living in the French countryside with his wife (French cultural icon Jane Birkin). Their lives are radically upended with the arrival of a younger artist (David Bursztein) and his girlfriend (Emmanuel Béart), who becomes the muse that awakens Edouard’s fading passions. Rivette creates a layered character study, while also offering an immersive meditation on the creative process.
