"A lively and somewhat self-effacing portrait of an artist whose work is anything but forgettable." – Hollywood Reporter

Award-winning filmmaker Marcel Ophüls returns after 18 years with an irreverent, charming journey through a life lived in film – from growing up as the son of legendary director, Max Ophüls, through to his own remarkable career both in front of and behind the camera.

Best known for his famously censored documentary, The Sorrow and the Pity, in Ain't Misbehavin the now 85-year-old Marcel plays the feisty raconteur, telling the story of a life worthy of one of his own films. Featuring anecdotes and interviews with the likes of Woody Allen, Jeanne Moreau and François Truffaut, Ain't Misbehavin is a wry, mischievous personal history of Hollywood and an absolute must for cinephiles.
