Laurent Herbiet, 2019 c7.2

He was the greatest cinematic genius, capable of provoking both laughter and fear. At his last public appearance, “Hitch” paid homage to Alma Reville Hitchcock – his co-scriptwriter, editor, mother of his child, life partner.

Claude Goretta, 1973 c7.0

After the death of his mother, a middle-aged insurance salesman inherits her small cottage. Selling the cottage, which is attractively located near the center of a big city, makes him a rich man and he buys a large house in the countryside. The salesman then decides to throw a big garden party and invite all his colleagues from the office. Loosened by large amounts of alcohol, the guests gradually shed all their inhibitions and reveal their innermost frustrations.
