MACARONI AND CHEESE
LES COQUILLETTES
2012, Ecce Films, 75 min, France, Dir: Sophie Letourneur

This sly comedy, unspooling in flashback, takes viewers into the eye of a film festival hurricane - much of it was shot guerrilla-style at the 2011 Locarno Film Festival in Switzerland. Writer-director Letourneur stars as a self-absorbed Parisian filmmaker who, with her two gal pals (Carole Le Page and Camille Genaud), pursues movies and men, not necessarily in that order, during their Swiss sojourn. “Consistently amusing and often blissfully silly.” - Manohla Dargis, The New York Times. In French, Italian and English with English subtitles.


PARTY GIRL
2014, Distrib Films, 95 min, France, Dir: Marie Amachoukeli, Claire Burger, Samuel Theis

Angélique (a marvelous Angélique Litzenburger) works as a bar hostess at a cabaret on the French-German border. At 60, she still enjoys the nightlife, though fewer men are attracted to her – except for Michel (Joseph Bour), a retired miner who surprises her with a marriage proposal. Winner of the Un Certain Regard Ensemble Prize at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival. In French with English subtitles.
