‘The film paints a colourful, frantic, moving and booming picture, which swings from one excess to another, from high-speed car chases with plenty of honking thrown in to epic breaks in the no man’s land of service stations, from heart attacks to carnal impulses, from street parades to evening performances… the exhilarating life of an artist is not exactly a walk in the park!’
– Cineuropa

The screening will start at the charming and typically Parisian cinema Le Brady at 7pm with tickets available online ONLY (link below)!

After the film, join us at ‘Tony’ – winner of a Time Out Paris Bar of the Year 2016 award – where you can enjoy the famous house cocktail for only €6, a Spritz for €5, or for those of you looking to satisfy your hunger, a selection of cheese and charcuterie accompanied by a bottle of wine for only €25! ‘Tony’ is only a 3 minute walk from Le Brady and there will be a privatised area for Lost in Frenchlation’s guests.

‘They go from town to town, a big top on their backs, their show over their shoulder. They bring dreams and disorder to our lives. They are ogres, giants. They’ve devoured the theater and miles and miles of road. But the imminent arrival of a baby and the return of a former lover will make old wounds, that we thought had been forgotten, resurface. So the party begins!’
– Official synopsis

Join us at Le Brady on Thursday 18th May to enjoy ‘Les Ogres’ with English subtitles and in true Parisian style – at the cinema!
