The ever-popular Alliance Française French Film Festival has opened in Adelaide at Palace Nova Cinemas.
Featuring a vast array of Francophone works, once again the festival divides the films thematically. This year’s themes include Head Over Heels, Exceptional Lives, French Wit and Thrills & Chills.
Highlights include: Eiffel, about the eponymous designer and the building of the tower which now defines Paris; The Godmother, starring iconic actor Isabelle Huppert; hilarious dysfunctional-family comedy The Wedding Speech; Antoinette in the Cévennes, which features the delightful Laure Calamy, best-loved for her role as Noémie in the hit TV series, Dix Pour Cent; and Lambert Wilson’s powerhouse performance as one of the political architects of modern France in De Gaulle.
Palace Nova will be hosting several special events. March 31st is a showing of De Gaulle along with a drinks reception. Delicious will be shown at a special Taste of France reception on April 7th, and the closing night reception includes a screening of the culture-clash comedy, #Iamhere
So don’t despair that Mad-March is over: the French are coming with a delightful invasion of cinematic gems, and gallic culture.
