Have you chosen your picks for this year’s Alliance Française French Film Festival?
With sessions already filling up, we’re taking a moment to look at 5 films we think are must sees!
Eiffel (CTC) | BOOK TICKETS
Opening this year’s festival is Eiffel, an utterly enchanting tale about one of France’s most iconic structures. Centred around the powerful love story between Romain Duris and the magnetic Emma MacKay, audiences will be swept away by the passion and brilliance of this stunning film.
Writer/director Éric Besnard’s mouth-watering new historical comedy indelibly pairs Grégory Gadebois and Isabelle Carré as a gifted chef and his unlikely protégé, who must find the resolve to free themselves from servitude and in the process create France’s first restaurant.
Antoinette In The Cévennes (M) | BOOK TICKETS
The delightful Laure Calamy (Call My Agent!) and her scene-stealing co-star, Patrick the donkey, captivate audiences in Antoinette in the Cévennes. An Official Selection from Cannes, this original and highly amusing comedy is not to be missed.
The Godmother (M) | BOOK TICKETS
The effervescent Isabelle Huppert returns to the festival with a triumphant performance in The Godmother, a laugh-out-loud, French noir comedy, where the gritty realism of Breaking Bad meets the stoner comedy of a Seth Rogen movie.
De Gaulle (M) | BOOK TICKETS
Gabriel Le Bomin’s spectacularly-mounted De Gaulle stirringly depicts a crucial period in the life of one of the most famous figures in the nation’s modern history, doing it enormous justice in the process. For fans of biographical drama, this film will not disappoint.
