Hello everyone !
Halloween is getting closer, and the next four French Movie Nights will gradually take you there !
We’ll start the month with a story full of humour and adventures in Paris in the early 20th century: Adèle Blanc-Sec, who could be described as a French and feminine version of Indiana Jones, will be confronted to the waking up of mummies and dinosaurs that shouldn’t have come back to life !
One week later, we’ll rediscover a fairy-tale that is supposed to take place in France, in a dark forest, in a dark castle, where beauty and monstruosity are sometimes not that different from each other. Jean Cocteau’s “Beauty and the Beast” will also be the first Black & White movie this year !
Right before Halloween, we’ll step back to the present and witness the reunion of two highschool friends in “With a friend like Harry…” If your best friend was a talented writer too busy taking care of his family to use his talent, how far would you be ready to go to get him to write again?
And finally, we’ll celebrate Halloween a bit longer with “Pars Vite et Reviens Tard” (“Have Mercy on Us All”) on November 2nd… People are dying in contemporary Paris, and all the clues tend to suggest the impossible: the return of the Black Plague!
To help you have a better idea of the four movies, here are some trailers:
The last two trailers don’t have subtitles, but of course the movies will have them !
So, to sum it all up:
– When ? On Wednesday evenings, at 7:30PM.
– Where ? WLT 21 (the room with the couch!)
– What ? AWESOME MOVIES, FREE SNACKS AND DRINKS, AND LOTS OF AMAZING PEOPLE !!!
SEE YOU NEXT WEDNESDAY !
