GRIT AND WHIMSY III: THE BEST OF RECENT BELGIAN CINEMA
With Belgian Beer Reception and Waffles from Crispy Truck!
LAST WINTER
Presented by the Consulate General of Belgium in Los Angeles, in cooperation with Flanders Image and Wallonie Bruxelles Images, and with the support of E.L.M.A. (European Languages and Movies in America).

This month's installment of Recent Belgian Cinema offers elegant pastoral drama LAST WINTER, in French with English subtitles. A Belgian beer reception will follow in the lobby. During the reception, Crispy Truck will also be selling sweet and savory Liege waffles with traditional toppings such as Nutella, whipped cream, strawberries and "Speculoos" (a favorite of Belgians made with Biscoff cookies!), and savory toppings such as ham & swiss and bacon, brie and basil, outside the theatre for ticket-holders only.

LAST WINTER
L'HIVER DERNIER
2011, Cinéart, 103 min, John Shank,

27-year-old Johan (Vincent Rottiers) lives alone on his father’s farm in south-central France, tending to the land and shuttling his mentally unstable sister between the countryside and a nearby institution. As winter sets in, Johan becomes increasingly isolated, neglecting his girlfriend and fixating on a wolf that has never been seen but that he is certain is endangering his livestock. John Shank’s elegant drama, hailed by Variety as “stunningly shot, languidly paced… assembled with impressive confidence and featuring quietly powerful performances,” follows the solemn alienation of a man desperately holding on to a bygone rural existence. “A carefully crafted visual poem set on an unforgiving landscape.” - 2011 Toronto International Film Festival. In French with English subtitles.
