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!
Love Affair(s) (CTC) | BOOK TICKETS
When two strangers are left alone in the French countryside, they fill their time by regaling stories of love gained and lost. Referred to as a “more serious Love Actually”, Love Affair(s) is an entertaining and surprising exploration of the complexities of modern love.
From the director of worldwide smash hit The Bélier Family comes #Iamhere, an endearing culture-clash comedy about a French chef seeking love and inspiration on the other side of the world.
Aline (CTC) | BOOK TICKETS
Inspired by the extraordinary life of singing sensation Céline Dion, Aline is the story of a teenager from Quebec whose powerful voice propels her onto the world stage to become the darling of millions.
The Man Who Sold His Skin (CTC) | BOOK TICKETS
What would it take to convince somebody to become a living canvas? For Syrian refugee Sam Ali, it is the promise of being reunited with the woman he loves. Provocative and powerful, this modern Faustian tale is the most biting art-world satire seen since The Square.
Mandibles (CTC) | BOOK TICKETS
Absurd comedy maestro Quentin Dupieux is back with another bonkers film about two lovable losers and a giant fly. (Yes, you read that right.) Mandibles is a totally bewildering, yet sweet and sincere story that is sure to tickle the funny bones of festival audiences.
