Following on from our popular January screening of ‘Un + Une’, Lost in Frenchlation is excited to bring you Maïwenn’s Cannes Film Festival 2015 award winning film, ‘Mon Roi’!
Hailed as “not only the Frenchest film at Cannes 2015 but the Frenchest film for years” (Evening Standard), ‘Mon Roi’ was one of 2015’s must-see movies which is sure to evoke a mixture of laughter and tears. The film is a different kind of love story that looks at “love and family life and having things to eat and drink that no other country ever makes so well” (Evening Standard), and it’s the perfect way to ease into the Valentine’s day weekend in Paris.
In typical Lost in Frenchlation style, we’ll be hosting the event at the unique cinema Studio 28 in the heart of Montmartre, with the evening kicking off from 8pm with a delicious ‘Mon Roi’ cocktail available at the bar (€5). After an hour of mingling with partners, friends and the international community of Paris, the film will start at 9pm.
‘Tony is admitted to a rehabilitation center after a serious ski accident. Dependent on the medical staff and pain relievers, she takes time to look back on a turbulent relationship that she experienced with Georgio. Why did they love each other? Who is this man that she loved so deeply? How did she allow herself to submit to this suffocating and destructive passion? For Tony, a difficult process of healing is in front of her, physical work which may finally set her free…’
