With only one month until France’s Presidential elections, Lost in Frenchlation is bringing you the most controversial film of the year on Friday 7 April: Lucas Belvaux’s ‘Chez Nous’ (‘This Is Our Land’) with English subtitles – “a film that deserves to be seen, thought about, and learned from”!
While the film has been labeled “a thinly veiled assault on France’s far-right Front National,” the Director has said, “It’s not so much an anti-FN film as a film about the populist message and how people relate to politics… It is not a militant film: it is a committed film, and a civic-minded film. It was made to provoke discussion, not to provoke the FN or fear of the FN”.
The screening will take place at the amazing Studio 28 in the heart of Montmartre – Paris’ oldest cinema rooom 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!
‘Pauline, a self employed nurse in a mining district in the north of France, raises her m two children alone and cares for her father, a former steelworker. Devoted and generous, her patients love her and count on her. Yet nobody sees that Pauline, who finds herself facing an increasingly harsh social reality, is slowly embarking on a path that no one in her family has taken before. A rising nationalist party, in quest of respectability, is going to take advantage of her popularity by making her its candidate in the local elections…’
