Nana, Emile Zola's classic tale of the Second Empire courtesan of the same name, was one of Jean Renoir's first films. Made in 1926, the silent film starred Renoir's then wife, Catherine Hessling, and the director, known as "Le Patron", went on to make such classics as La Grande Illusion, La Bete Humaine and La Regle du Jeu. This one-off screening at the Institut Francais, 17 Queensberry Place, SW7 will be accompanied by a specially composed score.

There are 15 pairs of tickets on offer to Independent readers. Phone Stephanie Mercier at the box-office (0171-589 6211) 2-4pm today. Performance is at 7.30pm.
