Continuing on in the spirit of International Women’s Day, Lost in Frenchlation is excited to bring you the humorous and adventurous feminist film ‘Si J’étais un Homme’ on Friday 24th March at the stunning cinema Studio 28 in Montmartre!
‘Si J’étais un Homme’ attracted a full house at UniFrances’s prestigious ‘Rendez-vous With French Cinema’ event, a showcase of the best of French cinema… and the buzz has continued ever since! The hilarious film about the physical and emotional struggles of a woman who wakes up with a penis “appeals to men and women, and while it’s very funny, there’s a poignant side too.”
The screening will take place at the amazing Studio 28 in the heart of Montmartre – Paris’ oldest cinema room which is also one of the city’s most iconic. Join us from 8pm for a film-themed cocktail available from the bar (€4.50, or €6.00 with a packet of popcorn) before the screening starts at 9pm. Tickets available on the door only – please arrive early to avoid disappointment!
‘Who has never imagined what it would be like to be the opposite sex, if only for a day? Jeanne hasn’t, that’s who!
Recently divorced, separated from her children one week out of two, she’s through with men, she doesn’t even want to hear or talk about them. But one fine day, her life is primed to take a very strange turn. At first sight, nothing is different about her… except for one little thing.
From comical situations to crazy laughter with her best gal pal, from panic to taking stock of her situation with her gynaecologist, our heroine will try as best she can to get through this… highly unusual situation.’
