Films rarely come as small as this, in 1981 New York City theatre bona fides Wallace Shawn and Andre Gregory started recording their conversations, this would all lead to them writing a small two header screenplay where two old friends catch up over dinner. This became My Dinner With Andre, where the two fictionalised versions of the actors have a conversation which drifts between the nature of humanism verses spiritualism and how this effects their views on theatre, life and politics. This unlikely screenplay would be brought to the screen by French director Louis Malle who tact hand brought something to this conversation and it became, and has remained, an unlikely cult hit and introduction for many audiences into more arthouse cinema. Filmmaker Brandon Kahn helps us to unravel what about this quiet movie made such a lasting appeal.
