THE RENDEZ-VOUS OF DÉJÀ VU
LA FILLE DU 14 JUILLET
2013, Shellac Distribution, 88 min, France, Dir: Antonin Peretjatko

From the Bastille Day parade that opens director Antonin Peretjatko’s feature debut, this film has a joie de vivre that recalls the freewheeling spirit of the ’60s French New Wave. An acrobat (Vimala Pons), her Louvre security-guard lover (Grégoire Tashnakian) and their friends take a beach vacation that gets interrupted by a government economic mandate. “Peretjatko’s film is a loopy and audacious comedy with an explicitly political setting and gleefully unleashes the brazen energy of youth.” – Richard Brody, The New Yorker. In French with English subtitles.
