This summer as always, Turin’s very own (niche) Cinema Centrale Arthouse unrelentlessly keeps on introducing some very interesting pieces of cinematography – in original language. This time, they bring, for the first time here in Italy, a 2016 documentary regarding one of the sacred monsters of photography: Robert Doisneau.

The documentary  – originally entitled Robert Doisneau, le révolté du merveilleux” – was  directed by Clémentine Deroudille, the artist’s own granddaughter, and wishes to acquaint the viewer with some novel (?!) aspects of Doisneau’s life and work. French critics found it a bit redundant and clichè at times, but that doesn’t mean it is not worth seeing it. At least for revisiting, one more time, some of papy‘s insights into the mundane.

Original trailer:
