AFA Ciné-club is partnering with the Austin Film Society to bring four great Jean-Paul Belmondo films to you in July. In the 1973 film LE MAGNIFIQUE, Belmondo reunites with director Philippe de Broca in this multifaceted comedy about a pulp fiction writer who can barely eke out a living, whose love life is a mess and who fantasizes endlessly about the adventures of reckless spy Bob Sinclair, the hero of his novels. The film spins between the mundane life of the novelist and the jet-setting adventures of the novelists' imaginary spy, with witty and revealing results. With Jacqueline Bisset as the woman “both” men are striving to impress.
