The late Louis Malle directed a series of memorable films in his native France (Zazie Dans Le Metro, The Lovers, The Fire Within) and later in the U.S. (Pretty Baby, Atlantic City, My Dinner With Andre). The Embassy of France has invited University of Paris professor Michel Chion, a critic, filmmaker, and composer, to discuss Malle’s work, with an emphasis on the director’s use of sound. Chion’s lecture will be delivered in English at 7 p.m. at La Maison Française, 4101 Reservoir Rd. NW. $4. (202) 944-6090. (Joel E. Siegel)
