Film: My Dinner with Andre (1981, English)
Directed by: Louis Malle
Duration: 109 minutes
When the famed critic Roger Ebert was asked to name a film devoid of any cliches, his answer was “My Dinner With Andre”.
French director Louis Malle made 20 odd films in his illustrious career during which he was either nominated or won practically every significant award at festivals, some of them multiple times – from the Palm d’Or to BAFTA, Golden Globe and the Oscars.
In this film, two actors, Andre Gregory and Wallace Shawn play themselves and share a conversation at a restaurant in New York. That is it, the basic premise of this audacious film is a conversation between the two but what a conversation it turns out to be! Gregory does most of the talking narrating his ideas and experiences and importantly, the conversation flows very naturally without any superficial elements in this cerebral film.
