La Quinzaine des Cineastes Françaises au Cinema le Nouvel Odeon
FEMMES FILMMAKERS FORTNIGHT: 28 sept – 11 oct

L’Effet aquatique – VF subtitled in English Comédie dramatique (1h23min)
Réalisateur: Solveig Anspach
Main cast: Florence Loiret-Caille, Didda Jonsdottir, Samir Guesmi, Philippe Rebbot, Olivia Côte
Samir, la quarantaine dégingandée, grutier à Montreuil, tombe raide dingue d’Agathe. Comme elle est maître-nageuse à la piscine Maurice Thorez, il décide, pour s’enapprocher, de prendre des leçons de natation avec elle, alors qu’il sait parfaitementnager. Mais son mensonge ne tient pas trois leçons – or Agathe déteste les menteurs!
‘L’Effet aquatique / ‘The Together Project’ – Cannes Review
“The new comedy from late French-Icelandic filmmaker Solveig Anspach finds a man pretending he can’t swim in order to get closer to the lifeguard he loves… its utter and complete lack of cynicism makes the film, in its own miniature way, sort of extraordinary…
It’s a perfect illustration of how far Anspach’s gently wacky, blithely good-natured sensibility goes toward keeping things off-kilter, regardless of how standard her set-ups and themes may be. In a world of big-screen comedies where you generally can see every beat, gag or punchline coming a mile away, that’s no small feat.” Jon Frosch – Hollywood Reporter

L’Avenir – VF subtitled in English Drame (1h38min)
Réalisateur: Mia Hansen-Løve
Main cast: Isabelle Huppert, Roman Kolinka, André Marcon, Edith Scob, Sarah Le Picard
Nathalie est professeur de philosophie dans un lycée parisien. Passionnée par son travail, elle aime par-dessus tout transmettre son goût de la pensée. Mariée, deux enfants, elle partage sa vie entre sa famille, ses anciens élèves et sa mère, très possessive. Un jour, son mari lui annonce qu’il part vivre avec une autre femme. Confrontée à une liberté nouvelle, elle va réinventer sa vie.
L’Avenir / Things to Come
Isabelle Huppert is note-perfect. “Is there a more commanding screen presence than Isabelle Huppert? From the spiralling American madness of Michael Cimino’s Heaven’s Gate to the diverse demands of Claire Denis’s African-set colonial parable White Material and Brillante Mendoza’s Philippines hostage drama Captive, Huppert has proved ready to rise to any challenge.
Hansen-Løve serves up unapologetic discussions of Rousseau, radicalism and revolution … but there is such life in the character of Nathalie (partly inspired by Hansen-Løve’s mother) that this weight often turns to levity and laughter. Crucially, Nathalie’s profession is central to her existence, unfashionably so for modern cinema. Beyond her marital problems, Nathalie’s primary relationship is with her books, a bond that cannot be broken.” Mark Kermode, The Observer / theguardian.com

La Belle Saison – VF subtitled in English Drame, Romance (1h46min)
Réalisateur: Catherine Corsini
Main cast: Cécile de France, Izïa Higelin, Noémie Lvovsky, Laetitia Dosch, Kévin Azaïs
1971. Delphine, fille de paysans, monte à Paris pour s’émanciper du carcan familial et gagner son indépendance financière. Carole est parisienne. En couple avec Manuel, elle vit activement les débuts du féminisme. Lorsque Delphine et Carole se rencontrent, leur histoire d’amour fait basculer leurs vies.
La Belle Saison / ‘Summertime’
“A country girl falls for Cecile De France in this gently tragic French romance, which welcomes audiences into the powerful glow of their relationship.
Perhaps the world is finally ready for a lesbian romance as direct and unapologetic as “Summertime,” though this beautifully realized tearjerker works as well as it does in part because the characters themselves don’t seem quite ready to follow through on the love they’re feeling. Turning back the clock to the early ’70s, Catherine Corsini delivers a luminous, golden-hued period piece in which a French farm girl (Izia Higelin) moves to Paris, where she falls for a radical feminist (Cecile De France), only to be called home by a family emergency…” Peter Debruge, Chief Film Critic, Variety

Bang Gang (une histoire d’amour moderne) – VF subtitled in English – Drame (1h42min)
Réalisateur: Eva Husson
Main Cast: Daisy Broom, Finnegan Oldfield, Fred Hotier, Lorenzo Lefebvre, Marilyn Lima
Les faubourgs aisés d’une ville sur la côte atlantique.George, jolie jeune fille de 16 ans, tombe amoureuse d’Alex. Pour attirer son attention, elle lance un jeu collectif où sa bande d’amis va découvrir, tester et repousser les limites de leur sexualité.
Bang Gang
“This sexy debut by AFI-trained French director Eva Husson owes a debt to such controversial adolescent group portraits as ‘The Virgin Suicides’ and ‘Kids.’ Set amid a recent(ish) French heatwave, likely 2003, Eva Husson’s steamy “Bang Gang” is the story of a girl named George who sincerely believes she has invented the concept of the swingers party… more at parisiscinema.com
