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!
The Rose Maker (CTC) | BOOK TICKETS
The magnificent Catherine Frot takes centre stage as Eve, a world-renowned rose farmer on the verge of bankruptcy, with three talentless gardeners on her hands. Funny and kind-hearted, The Rose Maker is a definite highlight of this year’s festival.
Charting the torturous unravelling of Adrien (Benjamin Lavernhe) through the night of a painful family wedding, crowd-pleasing director Laurent Tirard is back with a bang in this witty and sophisticated arthouse comedy.
Arab Blues (CTC) | BOOK TICKETS
When Parisian psychotherapist Selma (the magnificent Golshifteh Farahani) decides to return to her hometown in Tunisia, she is met with an eclectic town of locals that are both bewildered by her practice, and in desperate need of her help.
Black Box (CTC) | BOOK TICKETS
Uncovering secrets carries a devastating toll in this thrilling story about one man’s determination to get to the bottom of what caused a horrifying plane crash. Pierre Niney stars in this gripping thriller that will have audiences on the edge of their seats.
Bye Bye Morons (CTC) | BOOK TICKETS
This whirlwind, borderline-absurd film, starring and directed by Albert Dupontel, follows Suze Trappet’s (Virginie Efira) quest to find the son she was forced to abandon. A refreshing burst of anarchic energy, audiences will be left delightfully giddy by its twists and turns.
