3: Cezanne: The Sense of Sight
To this film, Sir Lawrence Gowing brings a lifetime's study of the paintings of Paul Cezanne (1839-1906), who more than any other set the course of modern art. 'Before Cezanne painted in Provence in the 19th century', says LAWRENCE GOWING , 'one couldn't have imagined that the natural terms in which the world is seen, the warm and the cool of it, the red and yellow and blue of it could be built into structures so grand, so mind-stretching'.

The feature film starring Burt Lancaster and Susan Sarandon.
Lou, an ageing crook with delusions about his past grandeur, works with increasing difficulty in Atlantic City, USA. By chance he encounters Dave, a hoodlum who has a small fortune in stolen cocaine, and together they decide to push the drugs. Unfortunately the original owners have other plans.
Interwoven with this story is the bittersweet love affair between Lou and the beautiful Sally and a vividly haunting portrait of a faded city.
Louis Malle's film has quickly established itself as a classic of the 80s and in the central role Burt Lancaster gives one of the greatest performances of his distinguished career.
