TONNERRE
2013, Wild Bunch, 102 min, France, Dir: Guillaume Brac

The little town of Tonnerre in Burgundy provides refuge to Maxime (Vincent Macaigne), a musician a bit past his prime. Things start looking up for him when he meets younger journalist Mélodie (Solène Rigot), until she suddenly breaks off their relationship, sending Maxime off the rails. As the film shifts from character study to thriller, Macaigne’s intense performance shows why he is among France’s most in-demand actors. In French with English subtitles.


PUPPYLOVE
2013, 85 min, Belgium, Dir: Delphine Lehericey

Fourteen years old and sort of an outsider, Diane (a marvelous Solène Rigot) is beginning to explore sexuality. She gets no guidance from single dad Christian (Vincent Perez), so when English teen Julia (Audrey Bastien) moves in to her apartment building, Diane gains a confidante. But the promiscuous Julia has few limits, and draws Diane into increasingly risky behavior. In French with English subtitles.
