Loulou, Pandora’s Box
Georg Wilhelm Pabst
A masterpiece in the history of cinema, Georg Wilhelm Pabst’s film, made in 1929, is a fantastic portrayal of Lulu, who is both a seducer and a victim, modern, sensual, controversial and irresistible. Louise Brooks’ performance is one of the most unforgettable in silent cinema.
La Monnaie presents a one-off showing of this film in the main theatre of the opera house. It will be accompanied by Alain Baents on piano.
