You’ll Laugh So Hard You’ll “Oui” A Little

Unfortunately in person screenings will not be taking place this weekend, but you can stream these fabulous French picks from the convenience of your home!

Je Ne Suis Pas Un Homme Facile

A shameless chauvinist gets a taste of his own medicine when he wakes up in a world dominated by women and locks horns with a powerful female author.

“I laughed and laughed at this gender-reversal sex farce. This director knows where to stick her satiric knife.” Movie Nation

Hors de Prix

Through a set of wacky circumstances, a young gold digger (Audrey Tautou) mistakenly woos a mild-mannered bartender (Gad Elmaleh), thinking he’s a wealthy suitor.

“Tautou finds a vulnerable side to her unscrupulous character, while Elmaleh… is a marvellous physical comedian whose tiniest facial expressions possess more humour than any number of pratfalls.” Movie Talk

Renoir

Set on the French Riviera in the summer of 1915, Jean Renoir — son of the Impressionist painter, Pierre-Auguste — returns home to convalesce after being wounded in World War I. At his side is Andrée, a young woman who rejuvenates, enchants, and inspires both father and son.

“Thanks to ace Taiwanese cameraman Mark Ping Bing Lee, it conveys the inspirational qualities of sun-dappled light and rosy flesh.” TimeOut

Bienvenue à Marly-Gomont

The story of Seyolo Zantoko, who as a freshly graduated doctor of Congolese descent in France, struggled with his family to integrate in a small rural village, and ended up being considered as one of the most respected doctors in the area.

“..a quirky movie with a good sense of humor, a better message and a lot of heart.” Keith & the Movies

J’ai Perdu Mon Corps

A story of Naoufel, a young man who is in love with Gabrielle. In another part of town, a severed hand escapes from a dissection lab, determined to find its body again.

“A gloriously hand-animated existential fable that manages to be both genuinely sweet and thoroughly twisted.” Vulture
