A forged 500-franc note is passed from person to person, until it falls into the hands of an innocent man who does not realise that the note is a fake – until it lands him in trouble. In his ferociously single-minded final film, French master Robert Bresson constructs an unforgiving and haunting vision of money’s destructive power.
‘L’Argent manages to convey coherence between rigid moral dogma and sympathetic multiplicity. It’s mind-blowing.’
Eric Henderson, Slant Magazine

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
