Préjudice

Antoine Cuypers Belgium, 2015

expired 296 days ago

We conclude our series of new films from My French Film Festival with a tense kammerspiele that marks Antoine Cuypers’s promising debut. A cool technique calling to mind Michael Haneke’s precise, penetrating gaze observes a family dinner on the verge of explosion.

Parisienne

Danielle Arbid France, 2015

expired 297 days ago

Continuing our series of films from My French Film Festival, Manal Issa stuns in her debut role in Danielle Arbid’s portrait of a young Lebanese woman in the City of Lights. Soon to be seen in Bertrand Bonello’s controversial snapshot of terrorist youth, Nocturama, she’s an actress to look out for.

Les Ogres

Léa Fehner France, 2015

expired 298 days ago

Our next new film from the My French Film Festival is Léa Fehner’s boisterous immersion into a flamboyantly creative theatre troupe. A terrific cast including The Unknown Girl’s Adèle Haenel deftly keeps the plates of drama (in front and behind the curtain) and comedy spinning.

A Decent Man

Emmanuel Finkiel France, 2015

expired 299 days ago

Today we launch our collaboration with My French Film Festival, which throws a spotlight on new French cinema. We begin with an intense character study of a man trying to get his life and family together, fighting with himself and others in a France rife with class and racial tensions.
