      Alain Tanner

      Alain Tanner

      Highest Rated: 85% Jonah Who Will Be 25 in the Year 2000 (1975)

      Lowest Rated: 85% Jonah Who Will Be 25 in the Year 2000 (1975)

      Birthday: Dec 6, 1929

      Birthplace: Geneva, Switzerland

      Alain Tanner, with his portraits of life among Geneva's marginal and harmless rebels, can easily be considered the director who introduced American audiences to the fact that it is not only bankers and diplomats who live in Geneva. Influenced by his involvement with the British Free Cinema movement in London in the early 1960s and with the French New Wave during his Paris years, Tanner's films, often co-scripted with the English art critic John Berger, combine a cinema-verite documentary style and with fable-like story telling. A gentle, idiosyncratic anarchy, tinged with irony, suffuses both "La Salamandre" (1971) and "Jonah Who Will Be 25 in the Year 2000" (1976). His later films, however, have been darker, and in the case of "No Man's Land" (1985), the whimsical optimism of the late 70s has been totally reversed.
