Ain’t Misbehavin

Un Voyageur (original title)


A film by Marcel Ophuls

Eighteen years after his last film (The Troubles We've Seen: A History of Journalism in Wartime), Marcel Ophuls comes back as one of the last cinema master and more especially, the most caustic and the funniest.

The director of The Sorrow and the Pity, shares his memories with us, stories incredibly rich and fascinating, making of AIN’T MISBEHAVIN a cheerful and bittersweet trip in Cinema history.

Son of the great Max Ophuls, Marcel can be a generous man and an admirer. Marcel talks with and about personalities like Jeanne Moreau, Bertold Brecht, Ernst Lubitsch, Otto Preminger, Woody Allen, Stanlely Kubrick and, of course, his friend François Truffaut.

A filmmaker without memory doesn't exist, here is Marcel Ophuls's “memorabilia store”.
