My Afternoons with Margueritte (La tête en friche), 2010, Directed by Jean Becker
This film stars Gérard Depardieu, Gisèle Casadesus, Claire Maurier, Maurane, and François-Xavier Demaison and is based on the book by the same name.
The story takes place in a small French village and is about a special bond and improbable friendship formed between a semi-literate man and an older, well-read woman who sort the world out with conversations they hold on a park bench.
AF DuPage held its inaugural Cine' Club on November 5, 2020. La Fille du Puisatier (2011 version) was the perfect film to get the discussion going. AFD members could choose to join French-speaking or English-speaking breakout rooms as we spent some time in Marcel Pagnol's Provence.
Introducing telescopefilm.com, a new website for international film. Telescope allows users to search and filter film by title, director, country, language, and genre, and indicates when the film is available for purchase or through a streaming service. This month, the Cultural Services of the French Embassy presents “French Revolutions: A selection of films about revolutionary moments in France.”
