New 4K restoration released on 2 June.

Le Mépris is arguably the director’s only film that could bring tears to your eyesJonathan Romney, The Guardian

54th in Sight and Sound’s 2022 Greatest Films of All Time poll.

A landmark in world cinema, and set around the extraordinary Villa Malaparte on Capri; LE MÉPRIS tells the tragic romance between Paul and his wife, Camille. Paul is enlisted the task of re-writing a film script. Whilst he becomes engrossed in writing, he appears oblivious to the film producer’s interest in his irresistibly beautiful wife, Camille. In turn, we witness the hurtful unfolding of Paul & Camille’s marriage.

Starring Brigitte Bardot as Camille, legendary French talent Michel Piccoli as Paul, alongside a strong supporting cast featuring Fritz Lang Jack Palance and Giorgia Moll. The restoration also features George Delarue’s original and unforgettable soundtrack.
