Sticking with the film theme of the week, let’s see what’s on where this week.
Something sweet for the weekend.
“Natalie is beautiful, a successful executive and happily married to her soulmate. Suddenly and tragically she is widowed and to cope with her loss she immerses herself in her work – to the concern of her friends, family and colleagues. Gradually Natalie’s zest for life is rekindled, with the help of her oddball colleague Markus, and a very unlikely relationship ensues.”
Again about love and again in french. Everybody remembers their first love right?
GOODBYE FIRST LOVE
“Mia Hansen-Løve returns with a delicate take on the travails of first love. Charting a relationship over ten years, the film follows Camille (a superb Lola Créton, Bluebeard) as she moves from the ecstasy of youthful passion, through heartbreak to maturity and finding her place in the world. A markedly different, but no less impressive, film to her previous feature, Father of My Children, it cements Hansen-Løve’s position as one of France’s most impressive filmmakers.”
We think this one is going to be a gem also.
“Bachir Lazhar, an Algerian immigrant, is hired to replace an elementary school teacher who died in tragic circumstances. As the class enters a period of shock, grief and healing, no one at the school is aware of Bachir’s painful former life, or that he is potentially facing deportation. Adapted from Évelyne de la Chenelière’s stage play, Philippe Falardeau’s film depicts the encounter between two distant worlds and the power of community in coping with tragedy.”
