Like every month, MUBI offers us a sharp selection of films in March. And to take advantage of it, we remind you that you can benefit from a free 30-day discovery offer with Première (follow this link).

The cycle dedicated to Michael Haneke, launched in February, will thus continue with Funny Games (the original released in 1997), The Time of the Wolf (with Isabelle Huppert) and the essential Love (with Jean-Louis Trintignant and Emmanuelle Riva), who won the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival in 2012, then four Césars and the Oscar for best foreign film in 2013.

MUBI is also putting the spotlight on German director Lotte Reiniger, a pioneer of animated cinema inspired by George Méliès and Asian shadow theatres. Three of his works will be scheduled in March, including The Adventures of Prince Ahmed (1926). Inspired by the tale The thousand and One Nightsentirely made of shadow puppets, this film is today considered the oldest animated film still preserved.
