…aaand we’re back!
Whether you’re new to Paris or a seasoned Parisian, Lost in Frenchlation is excited to invite you to experience the world of French cinema with us! Every month we’ll be screening the best French films with English subtitles at some of Paris’ nicest cinemas, opening up an integral aspect of French culture and one of the country’s most-renown arts to the international community. We’ll also host a cocktail hour before each film so you have the chance to catch up with old friends and make some new ones too!
We’ll be kicking things off after the summer break with our screening of ‘L’Économie du Couple’ / ‘After Love’ from Joachim Lafosse (2016 Cannes Film Festival) in the heart of Montmartre at the infamous Cinema Studio 28! The evening will start with a film-themed cocktail (€4.50) available at the cinema bar from 8pm which can be enjoyed in the beautiful courtyard before the screening starts at 9.15pm.
In typical French style, ‘L’Économie du Couple’ tugs on your heartstrings while exploring the complexities and realities of love:
‘After 10 years of living together, Marie and Boris have decided to get a divorce. Marie is going to buy the apartment in which they live with their two daughters. But it was Boris who had completely renovated it, and since he cannot afford to find another place to live, they must share it. When all is said and done, neither of the two is willing to give up.’
– Official synopsis
Although only released in cinemas earlier this month, the film has already received widespread critical acclaim from the international film community:
‘With outstanding, genuine performances from Bejo and Kahn, the subtle and powerful After Love reminds us that sometimes, no matter how much beauty is to be found in our immediate surroundings, we just need to get out.’
– Kerry Craddock – Toronto International Film Festival
Join us for our comeback screening this September 16th and see what all the fuss over French films is really about…
See you at the cinema!
