Panaji: International Film Festival of India (IFFI) 2010, scheduled to begin in Goa, will have special retrospective on French filmmaker Jean Becker.
Officials of the Entertainment Society of Goa (ESG), co-host for the festival, said that total four films would be screened as a part of retrospective given in the honour of this legendary filmmaker.
The retrospective would be opened with his 1983 made French film titled `One Deadly Summer`.
The film, made after he took a break of 20 years, had won several awards including Cesar Award in France for Best Actress, Supporting Actress, Editing and Best Writing.
Becker`s other films including `Elisa` (1995), `Conversation with My Gardener` (2007) and `Love Me No More` (2008) will also be screened during the beginning of the festival on November 22.
In 1961, Becker made his first film `Un Nomm? La Rocca` (A Man Named Rocca) followed by three films including `Tender Voyou` (Tender Scoundrel) (1966), that were critically and commercially successful.
After completing the episodes of the hit television series `Les Saintes Cherries` (1965-1970), Becker took a break from filmmaking for nearly 20 years. He returned in 1983 with `Les Meurtrier` (One Deadly Summer).
The film was a huge success and was nominated for the Palme d`Or at the Festival de Cannes and also got four Caesars (1984).
