With sessions already filling up, we’re taking a moment to look at 5 films we think are must-sees!
The Big Hit (CTC) | BOOK TICKETS
Inspired by remarkable true events, multi-award-winning writer Emmanuel Courcol’s rousing, Cannes-selected directorial debut follows a dedicated out-of-work actor (indelibly played by the fabulous Kad Merad) whose life takes an unexpected career turn.
The wickedly entertaining new film from writer/director Marc Fitoussi, Appearances is a sexy, Chabrol-esque marital thriller, set against a luxe Vienna backdrop. For the sensational Karin Viard, this is one of her most vivacious roles yet
Perfumes (M) | BOOK TICKETS
This quintessentially French comedy pairs sad-sack divorced dad Guillaume (Call My Agent!’s charming Grégory Montel) with egotistic but highly talented perfumer Anne Walberg (Emmanuelle Devos) in a classic odd-couple story.
Night Shift (M) | BOOK TICKETS
The irresistible Omar Sy joins Belgian darling Virginie Efira for this searing and utterly engrossing film. Set over 24-hours, three world-weary cops start to question their livelihoods when ordered to escort a man to a plane for deportation to a country that will kill him.
Summer of ’85 (M) | BOOK TICKETS
Told in flashback and reminiscent of a retro 80s teen movie, François Ozon’s latest, unmissable film is a thrilling and hotblooded tale of love and obsession. Blending sensuality with mystery, Summer of 85 is France’s edgier answer to Call Me By Your Name.
