Taxi Driver at the Cinémathèque Française
The master film buff Martin Scorsese is in Paris. But don’t look for a film shoot on the streets of the capital, because the legendary director has settled until 2016 at the Cinémathèque Française, where he is exhibiting his own private collection, one that is usually based in New York. With a scenography directed this time by Maciej Fiszer, Martin Scorsese returns to what he has described as his spiritual home. Via photographs, storyboards, costumes, posters and other artefacts, the movie maestro shares his sources of inspiration, working methods and memories. The exhibition reveals how his artistic approach to narrative has characterised modern American cinema through such classics as Taxi Driver, which won the Palme d'Or at Cannes in 1976, Raging Bull, Casino, Gangs of New York and The Departed. A director of outstanding actors, he has forged artistically rewarding relationships with Robert De Niro, Harvey Keitel and, more recently, Leonardo DiCaprio, to mention only three prestigious names. This is just one essential element that has made him an incredibly influential and respected filmmaker in France and throughout the world. JR.
