Thanks. Everybody really loved your father around here. We’ll miss him. We just have some papers to sign. Okay. Have a seat. Thanks. Okay. Your father was– He was an inspiration. I mean, John Laurentian played such an important role in my work, in my life– Just before your father died, we were speaking with him.
.. about doing a retrospective screening series. I’m sure he would have liked that. Yeah. All right, so just there and there. Okay. That’s it. Great. Thank you. I could do it. Do what? The retrospective.
We could make it a memorial retrospective. It’s not too soon? I mean, I’d– I’d hate to– No, no. No, it’s fine. Um, it’ll give me something to do. [ Bell Jingles ] [ Chuckles ] What? What what? I’m sorry.
Didn’t you just say that you volunteered… to organize screenings of your father’s films? I think I did. Well, okay. So that’s fucking crazy. Yeah. I– Well, hey, if it gets you out of the house. I get out of the house.
Mmm. A little. – Don’t I? – I haven’t seen you in months. I’m out now. Okay. Film festival. So do you have any idea how to do that? It’s a memorial retrospective, and I’ll figure it out. I haven’t seen them.
What? – His films. – Any of them? Well, I’ve… seen parts. Just, I couldn’t. At university? I mean, they screened your father’s films all the time. It was complicated. And now? I thought it would be a way to get to know him a little.
Your father was a prick. Yeah. Beautiful, talented, francophone… prick. Bergman, Antonioni, and now Laurentian. The big three, all no longer with us. Yes, John Laurentian was one of the most influential filmmakers, not only of his generation, but of all time.
And he’ll be missed. No question. Laurentian made his films his way. I absolutely adored L’été Dernier. Hmm. Last Summer, yes. Pauline said, and I am paraphrasing here, that The Last Summer was the film that raised the mirror.
.. that revealed to both English and French speaking Canada… what it meant to be Canadian. Something along those lines. [ Chuckling ] It was one of the greats. He was one of the greats.
He sure was. And he will be missed. Our thoughts and prayers go to his family that he left behind. His wife and his daughter. And that’s all the time we have this evening, folks.
I’m Sebastian Todd. This is Cornelius Cole. Thank you for watching Take One. Bonsoir. [ Static Burst ] Guess who’s up. Five bucks for both. Jesus. I made breakfast. There’s French toast in the oven.

.. gave me this. Oh. Gracie, are you happy? What? You heard me. What kind of question is that? Sorry. How’s your retrospective going? I don’t want to rush it. It’s been almost a month. – Has it? – Hmm.
There was something on TV again this morning. – I don’t know. – I think it’s great that you’re working. He made 32 films, for Christ sakes. How many am I supposed to show in three days? Guest speakers and panel discussions– You– You don’t have to do this thing, you know.
I made them book the theater specifically so I couldn’t back out again. The dates are set. So you get an expert. You realize people study your father’s work… at practically every film institution in the world.
I don’t know. You’ll get an expert, and they can take care of everything. [ Moaning ] [ Grunting ] [ Moans ] [ Chuckling ] Happy birthday, sweetheart. Shouldn’t you– Do you have to… elevate your legs or something? [ Moans ] [ French ] [ Handset Settles In Cradle ] No.

.. brief and meaningless. He was greedy, but… he wasn’t bad. [ Adam ] John Laurentian stopped making documentaries because… he felt, with fiction, he could get much closer to the truth. It was this emotional existential truth that interested him.
He referred to his narrative films as “Cinemanovels.” Brisées, or Broken Engagement, is the title John wanted for his new version… of Last Summer, L’été Dernier, the most beloved of his Cinemanovels.
The studio refused to let him recut the film. Many of you will have noticed subtle differences in the cut we have produced this evening, although I’m certain most of you suspected something was up… when you saw a film called Broken Engagement listed in the program.
.. and Last Summer curiously omitted. Well, the rumors are true. He did leave behind a series of notes. And Broken Engagement is the film John Laurentian’s notes indicate he wanted to make.
This is the turning point in the film. I wanted to stop it here because this is where everything changes. This is when Last Summer truly becomes Broken Engagement. In this new version, you’ll see David no longer abandons his wife and daughter.
.. for the character played by Sophie, the complete opposite of what happens in the original version. Peter Harcourt said he felt the original ending was a little cold. I wonder what he would have said.
.. had John been able to recut the film the way he wanted. I hope you enjoy the film. Ben? Hello?
