THE FRENCH

“In the hands of the great and singular William Klein, it is at once a gripping sports page, a fascinating piece of reportage, and a work of art.” —Wes Anderson

At first glance, photographer and filmmaker William Klein (the man behind such unique pop-art works as MISTER FREEDOM and WHO ARE YOU, POLLY MAGOO?) may seem like an odd candidate to make the first all-access documentary about the French Open tennis tournament. But it all clicks; the sport, the spectacle, the personalities – among them John McEnroe, Bjorn Borg, Chris Evert, and Ivan Lendl. As potent a 1979 time capsule imaginable.
