The Marx Brothers, the indomitables of the cinema

Mathieu De Muizon, Hélène Deschamps
Like the Lumière brothers, the Marx Brothers were real brothers. At the same time, these fabulous comic actors played imposture like no one else.
  • Mathieu De Muizon studied Fine Arts in London. A graduate of Saint Martins University, he now works in Paris as an illustrator. In the “Seeds and Guides” collection, he has illustrated the title on Jacques Brel and that on Sempé. 

  • Hélène Deschamps After getting her DEA (Masters of research) in cinema, Hélène Deschamps wrote a book on L’Amour fou by Jacques Rivette. Today she is a projectionist and conveyor in cinema: with her caravan, she goes from class to class talking about cinema to children and leading workshops to make them see the images from the other side… Hélène adores the films of Pierre-Luc Granjon!

We speak of it!
  • This is the 7th book on the cinema from this discreet collection (maybe too discreet to be noticed?), which in a few pages but with great writing quality, draws very precise portraits. Let us hope that young readers will be pleased to discover these films as brilliant as fireworks.
