“Someone asked me the other day if I could name a movie that was entirely devoid of clichés. I thought for a moment, and then answered, My Dinner with Andre.” – Roger Ebert
“It’s the most subliminal piece of magic realism—expansive, incantatory words jousting with monotonous matter—ever put on film.” – ArtForum
“My Dinner With Andre is still shocking in its own way: it dares to force you to conjure up a private movie inside your head.” – The Village Voice
Old friends Wallace (Wallace Shawn) and Andre (Andre Gregory) haven’t seen each another in five years and agree to meet for dinner. Andre, a once well-known theater director, dropped out of the New York scene to travel the world, while Wallace stuck around, finding only mixed success as a playwright. As they sit down to eat, Andre launches into a series of fantastic stories from his time away, and Wallace can’t help but notice how different their worldviews have become.
Dir. Louis Malle. 1981. 110 min.
