DEATH BY DEATH
JE ME TUE À LA DIRE
2016, 90 min, Belgium, Dir: Xavier Seron

The narrative feature debut from writer-director Xavier Seron is this dark comedy about mortality. After his cat-lady mother (Myriam Boyer) has a cancer scare, Michel (Jean-Jacques Rausin) begins obsessing over his own health, a process complicated by the return of his girlfriend’s old flame, who is a doctor. Winner of the Palm Springs International Film Festival’s New Voices/New Visions Grand Jury Prize. “Frequently hits the sweet spot between oddly eccentric and cinematically appealing — the latter in large part due to its crisp, bichrome cinematography — and announces Seron as a talent to watch.” – Boyd van Hoeij, The Hollywood Reporter.

In the second feature from writer-director Thomas De Their, elderly couple Michel and Jeanne (Michel Piccoli and Natasha Parry) take to the road for their summer picnic, an annual ritual to remember their son Philippe, who died decades earlier.

A touching and poetic drama that mirrors the human experience with the wonders of nature. In French with English subtitles.
