AGE OF PANIC
LA BATAILLE DE SOLFERINO
2013, Shellac Distribution, 94 min, France, Dir: Justine Triet

May 6, 2012 becomes a hectic day for news correspondent Laetitia (Laetitia Dosch) - as she covers Socialist presidential candidate François Hollande’s victory, her unstable ex-husband (Vincent Macaigne) shows up at her apartment demanding to see their kids. The strong lead performances and scenes shot in Paris streets during Election Day add sparks to this indie dramedy. In French with English subtitles.


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.
