The online festival kicked of on January 18th and we have seen the 7 films selected for the US begin to take off, the lineup is stronger and more diverse than ever this year, a fantastic reflection of the state of French cinema! Some of our favorites are below and remember: all films start at just $1.99 so you have no excuse not to see them all!
It Boy (20 Ans D’Ecart) is proving to be a fan favorite, the Virginie Efira and Pierre Niney romantic comedy is sitting inside the top 5 romantic movies on iTunes, and the #2 most popular foreign language film! And with good reason! Check out the trailer for this funny, sexy, and heartwarming movie below.
The hard hitting and controversial French Blood (Un Français) has grabbed thriller fans. “Seldom has a film addressed the virulent racism of France's xenophobic far right in such brutal detail” (TIFF) and in the current social and political climate, this address is necessary and important. Watch the trailer below and see this powerful film for yourself.
What do you get if you mix a dashing intellectual, a beautiful artist, a gorgeous country mansion, and a whole heap of sexual tension? The perfect French romantic drama of course! And Sand Castles (Les Châteaux de Sable) is just that. Starring the always adorable Emma de Caunes and classic movie heartthrob Yannick Renier the chemistry is palpable. See for yourself below.
Quebec’s very own Amelie is charming audiences in Henri Henri. Nominated for TEN Canadian Screen Awards, and screening at a slew of international film festivals this film will light up your life if you let it. Watch the trailer below and let yourself be carried away by the magic.
