Lost in Frenchlation invites you to our screening of ‘Mon Garçon’ (‘My Son’) – the suspenseful thriller about a father’s perilous journey to save his son and family, directed by Oscar-nominated Christian Carion (‘Joyeux Noël’) – on Friday 20th October! The screening will be at the iconic Studio 28 at 9pm, with a cocktail hour beginning at 8pm!

‘With intense camera-work and a soundtrack composed by Laurent Perez del Mar, My Son progresses like a beating drum, delivering a feeling of suspense. The film soon slips into violence, but that also makes up an integral part of what the film does best: telling the story of a brutal journey into the most profound of dangers, incarnated by obscure and evil forces, which only serves to mirror the subconscious of the main character. Guillaume Canet is offered a strong leading role, which he captures with incredible talent.’

‘Julien travels constantly for work – his perpetual absence from home has wrecked his marriage. During a stopover in France, he gets a message from his very distraught ex-wife: Mathys, their seven-year-old, has disappeared. Julien begins the search for his son. He will stop at nothing to get the boy back… Christian Carion places long-time collaborator Guillaume Canet in unique shooting conditions to create this searing portrait of a man out of control, a father forced into violence by terrible circumstances… A relentless, unbearably tense thriller.’
