Recently I saw Tavernier's ROUND MIDNIGHT for the first time since the 80s. Good music, well-made film, but somehow this look at Paris expat jazz scene fell flat for me -- as did Eastwood's BIRD. Maybe it is something about the dissolute life style that went with the territory.
A SUNDAY IN THE COUNTRY -- a very different Tavernier film about an aging artist -- hold up much better IMO.
Here's something to cheer us up after "Round Midnight"
It's ages since I saw A Sunday in the Country - I hired the VHS in fact - but I remember enjoying it.
