PIERRE ÉTAIX: FRENCH COMEDY MASTER

As Long As You're Healthy

Tant qu’on a la santé

Pierre is a serious-minded young man with a lot of good will, but he doesn’t feel comfortable in the 20th century. Étaix’s third feature is comprised of sketches and is centered on a protagonist who undergoes different situations. Five years later, Étaix reedited the film as he had initially conceived it, dividing it into four distinct episodes.

Followed by Feeling Good (En pleine forme) (1966/2010, 13 min.), a re-edited version of a sketch originally part of As Long As You’re Healthy.
