The French Film Festival
November 3, 2010 § Leave a comment
Everyone loves the French Film Festival. This year it’s running from November 18th to 28th, and has a few Gerard Depardieu films in it, namely Mammuth and My Afternoons With Margueritte. Depardieu is one of the best actors ever, even in Green Card he has this little nod he does to Andie McDowell at the end that always makes me gasp in admiration at a little gesture which can elevate a whole movie. Also featured will be a Q & A with veteran director John Boorman and an old black and white from 1928 called ‘Money’ (director Marcel L’Herbier)
The Opening film is The Names of Love directed by Michael LeClerc, which was 2010 Cannes International Critics Selection. The movie is the story of a liberal spirit (Sara Forestier) who tries to convert a right-wing man, but instead falls in love with him.
