For the first time at the Met, Anna Netrebko sings the title role of Adriana Lecouvreur, the great real-life 18th-century actress who is adored by many, but who loves only the military hero Maurizio, sung by Piotr Beczała.

Gianandrea Noseda conducts Cilea’s tragedy, directed by Sir David McVicar, with the action partially set in a working replica of a Baroque theater.

The cast also features Anita Rachvelishvili as the Princess of Bouillon, Adriana’s rival for Maurizio’s affections who will stop at nothing to win his love; Ambrogio Maestri as Michonnet, Adriana’s faithful friend; and Carlo Bosi as the duplicitous Abbé.

Best known as one of Gallic cinema’s finest young actors, Louis Garrel (Mon Roi, From the Land to the Moon) steps behind the camera for his second, critically-acclaimed feature, a delightfully playful and oh-so-French romantic comedy about three impossibly attractive Parisians.

Garrel stars as Abel, a dashing journalist whose girlfriend, Marianne (Laetitia Casta), informs him in the opening scene that she has fallen pregnant, and is leaving him to marry the father (who happens to be Abel’s best friend). So begins a tale that stretches over a number of years, filled with unexpected joys and heartbreaks; Marianne will remerge into his life, as will Eva (a radiant Lily-Rose Depp), the impetuous younger sister of the man he was abandoned for.

Shifting points of view as nimbly as its players, this beguiling tale, co-written with the legendary Jean-Claude Carrière (Belle de jour, Cyrano de Bergerac), effortlessly navigates through the bric-à-brac of loves and secrets with a winning, New Wave-esque sensibility; Paris’ streets and cafés appear almost magically unchanged since Truffaut’s 1960’s. However it’s Garrel’s carefully considered yet light touch that charms and captivates, leaving audiences feeling an enduring sense of satisfaction.

What are we without our memories and most-treasured possessions? That’s the question that we’re invited to contemplate in Claire Darling, the thoughtful and affecting new film from Julie Bertuccelli (Since Otar Left, AF FFF2004), based on the best-selling novel by Lynda Rutledge.

On the first day of summer, reclusive millionaire Claire (Catherine Deneuve) lays all of her worldly objects out on the front lawn of her mansion, impulsively determined to sell everything. As a horde of curious bystanders and opportunistic neighbours fight over the ridiculously underpriced antiques, each object stirs vivid memories for Claire of her flamboyant life. But soon, her long-estranged daughter Marie (Chiara Mastroianni) arrives, determined to stop these proceedings by any means...

Emotional, subtle and elegantly directed, Claire Darling is a deeply personal film for Bertuccelli, filmed in the estate of her own grandmother, and Deneuve is remarkable as always as the larger-than-life heiress, playing opposite her real-life daughter. This is a poignant story of emotional attachment, mis-remembered pasts, and the complexity of mother/daughter relationships. The ending may surprise you, and packs an emotional punch.

The latest cinematic treat from director Eloïse Lang and the superlative Camille Cottin (Call My Agent, AF FFF2016, and Family Photo in this year’s Festival) follows the surprise 2015 box office smash, Harry Me, and brings on the laughs in seismic waves – a farce-laden, mother-daughter comedy romp for everyone called Dumped.

Siblings Rose (Camille Cottin) and Alice (Camille Chamoux, Gazelles, AF FFF2015) are two sides of the same coin – Rose is a musician, living out a wild, alcohol-fuelled existence, while Alice is the archetypal straight-laced, responsible homemaker who prides herself on having her life together. While the sisters don’t often see eye-to-eye, they do agree that their mother, Françoise (César and Lumiere award winner Miou-Miou, Welcome Aboard AF FFF2013), needs some urgent cheering up after being dumped by the girls’ father for a younger woman.

To celebrate Françoise 60th birthday, the sisters take her to the beautiful tropical island of La Réunion. It’s there that Rose has the idea of asking Thierry (Johan Heldenberg, The Zookeeper’s Wife) to flatter Françoise with his charm and attention. But what was intended as a small confidence boost causes their holiday plans to unravel as things really spiral out of control.

Award-winning director Cécilia Rouaud has assembled some of France’s most talented and beloved stars for Family Photo, her superbly witty and entertaining new dramedy, which achieved major success with French critics and audiences in late 2018.

Gabrielle, Elsa and Mao are three adult siblings, leading very different lives. Single mother and artist Gabrielle (Vanessa Paradis) has struggled to make ends meet, and finds herself working as a human statue along the Seine; Elsa (Camille Cottin) has married well but is increasingly distraught at her inability to conceive; videogame designer Mao (Pierre Deladonchamps) drowns his melancholy and frustration at the world in psychoanalysis and booze.

Their long-separated parents aren’t exactly helping matters. Pierre (Jean-Pierre Bacri) has taken up with a woman younger than them all, and Claudine (Chantal Lauby) drives everyone crazy. The passing of their grandfather forces a family reunion, and the raising of a question that none of them wants to face: what to do about beloved matriarch, Mamie?

Cleverly mixing hilarious sibling battles with moments of burgeoning romance and touching, if fragile, reconciliation, Family Photo delivers laughs and tears in way that many films try, but few achieve so expertly.

Ludovic Bernard (Mission Pays Basque) demonstrates his elegance and sensitivity behind the lens with In Your Hands in an emotionally stirring tale of a young man and his rare gift for music.

Mathieu (Jules Benchetrit) lives with his family in a housing project where peer pressure has led him into petty theft. When the director of a prestigious music conservatory, Pierre (Lambert Wilson, Raising Colours in this year’s Festival), hears Mathieu playing piano at a railway station (#PianoEnGare), he is mesmerised. Pierre decides to secure him private lessons with the imposing Countess (Kristin Scott Thomas), although with a secret agenda: to enter Mathieu in an international competition. Social pressures, and the daunting prospect of performing piano professionally causes Mathieu to question himself.

Will he be able to play at the international competition or not?

With a sweeping and swirling camera that seems to get ‘inside’ the music, Bernard wrangles many themes throughout In Your Hands, including that of social privation, although distinguished along class lines, not race or creed. Mathieu’s tackling of Rachmaninoff echoes the 1996 film Shine, in which Geoffrey Rush as the adult David Helfgott also conquered this ‘Everest’ of classical piano.

French With English Subtitles

Part of the Alliance Française French Film Festival

Published in 1985 and translated into fifteen languages, Marguerite Duras’ La Douleur (pain) is considered one of the great literary works of the 20th century – a searing recollection of her experiences in Paris during the Second World War. Adapting such a work for the screen is an ambitious undertaking, and one that has garnered its fair share of controversy under the directorial gaze of Emmanuel Finkiel.

It is 1944. Marguerite Duras (Mélanie Thierry, The Dancer, AF FFF2017) remembers her past as a Resistance member in Nazi-occupied France with her husband, Robert Antelme, and the unbearable pain of waiting after the Gestapo deports him. She throws herself into a desperate struggle to secure his return.

In doing so, Duras plays a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse, including a chilling relationship with a local Vichy collaborator, Rabier (Benoît Magimel, 150 Milligrams, AF FFF2017), whose motives are unclear and suspicious.

Primarily built on two chapters from Duras’ six-part book, Finkiel removes the radicalism of its source text and repurposes it in a far more conventional, accessible way. Visually, this is an epic, heartrending depiction of sorrow and the lengths one woman will endure to be reunited with the man she loves.

French iconoclast Olivier Assayas makes a triumphant return to his native tongue after two award-winning films in English, 2014’s Clouds of Sils Maria (Best Supporting Actress, César Awards, 2015) and 2016’s Personal Shopper (Best Director, Cannes 2016).

In Non-Fiction, he picks up the same thread woven through Clouds of Sils Maria, teasing out the lives of dissatisfied creative types but, injects it with generous doses of wit and irreverence.Juliette Binoche (Let the Sunshine In, AF FFF2018, and Claire Denis’ High Life in this year’s Festival) plays an actress, Selena, caught in a tedious personal rut as a policewoman on a popular TV show. Her lover is author Léonard (Vincent Macaigne, C’est la vie!, AF FFF2018) whose publisher and long-time friend just happens to be her husband, Alain (Guillaume Canet, Rock'n Roll, AF FFF2018). Their professional and personal conflicts reach boiling point when Alain refuses to publish Léonard’s new work, while Selena is convinced it’s a masterpiece.

These starring actors deliver a stunning spectrum of performances, as they squabble humorously and intellectually within the context of the Parisian publishing world, eventually falling victim to their own vices.

Pierre Schoeller’s epic retelling of the French revolutionary events of 1789 is a magnificent historical fresco. It is also the most expensive film produced in France for that year, and the much-anticipated follow-up to his 2011 Cannes Un Certain Regard and multiple César award-winning feature, L’Exercice de l’État.

The Bastille has been stormed. The winds of liberty are billowing through the streets of Paris. A young woman, Françoise (Adèle Haenel), and the handsome Basile (Gaspard Ulliel, It’s Only the End of the World, AF FFF2017), begin to realise their dreams of emancipation in the newly created political system.

Opposition grows against King Louis XVI (Laurent Lafitte, Papa ou Maman, AF FFF2016; Au Revoir Là Haut, AF FFF2018) and rioters take to the streets. Despite their lowly station, Françoise and Basile ride the tides of change as the seeds of the new republic are planted.

Wrapped in breathtaking imagery from the many on-site locations – and featuring sumptuous costuming by acclaimed designer Anaïs Romand – One Nation, One King is resplendent with its all-star cast (including Louis Garrel, Planetarium, AF FFF 2017; and Denis Lavant, The Night Eats the World in this Festival) – a must-see for those who love lavish period dramas.

Many people remember author and diplomat Romain Gary for his marriage to ingénue Jean Seberg (star of Godard’s 1960 classic, Breathless) – but Seberg was not his first obsession. In Gary’s own ‘fictionalised’ telling of his early life, he attributes his endearing yet eccentric mother for making him a success whilst simultaneously burdening him with her boundless maternal love.

Originally adapted by Jules Dassin in 1971, this second screen version of Promise at Dawn stars Pierre Niney (It Boy, AF FFF2014) as Gary and Charlotte Gainsbourg (Ismael’s Ghosts, AF FFF2018) as his mother, Nina. We’re thrown into a tumultuous trajectory that twists and turns across a difficult childhood in Poland, a sun-drenched adolescence in Nice and through to piloting adventures in Africa.

At every touchstone in Gary’s life, Nina leaves her ineffaceable mark. With boundless dreams and huge aspirations, she is the momentum that propels Gary forward, eventually culminating in the novel of Promise at Dawn that he feverishly writes as his life comes to a close during the Dia de los Muertos celebrations in Mexico.

Based on the remarkable true story of Joseph Ferdinand Cheval, filmmaker Nils Tavernier delivers this stunning and engrossing account of love and dedication, The Ideal Palace.

Set in the south of France in 1879, Cheval (Jacques Gamblin The Finishers, opening night of AF FFF2014) is a humble postman. He leads an unassuming life, seemingly revelling in the solitude of his 20-mile delivery routes and daydreaming about the world of wonders that he only sees through the postcards and magazines he delivers.

He meets and falls in love with the breathtaking Philomène (Laetitia Casta, A Faithful Man in this year’s Festival), and the arrival of their baby daughter, Alice, causes him to look at things in a different way. He sets about building a castle for Alice – one fit for a princess – that consumes the next 30-plus years of his life. This castle eventually becomes recognised as an enduring and important French historical monument.

Spectacular photography and equally noteworthy performances give credence to this absorbing parable of persistence and vision, the larger-than-life undertaking of one very reserved man and the huge legacy he bestowed on France.

Continuing her propensity for semi-autobiographical projects, actor, co-writer and director Valeria Bruni Tedeschi (A Castle in Italy, AF FFF2014) stars alongside her real-life mother, Marisa Borini, and her daughter, Oumy, in The Summer House. The luminous Valeria Golino (The Very Private Life of Mr. Sim, AF FFF2016) takes on a role based on Bruni Tedeschi’s off-screen sister and former first lady of France, Carla Bruni, to turn this film into a genuine family affair.

Anna (Bruni Tedeschi) heads off to her family’s estate in the Riviera to spend some time working on her latest screenplay and time away from the frantic pace of Paris. However, this move means dealing with her largely dysfunctional family – including Pierre Arditi (Family Matters, AF FFF2014) as the patriarch – as well as a particularly brutal break-up and the omnipresent ghosts of her past.

A sun-drenched and alcohol-fuelled comedy-drama, The Summer House gives us a glimpse into the foibles of the French Riviera’s bourgeoisie, and what we can only guess is a risible insight into one of Europe’s most high profile families. Consider it a jocular rollercoaster ride of revelations and recriminations over light lunches and alfresco dinners on the picturesque Côte d’Azur.

One of the biggest audience hits of Cannes 2018 (where it premiered as the centerpiece of the Directors’ Fortnight section), this sparkling new screwball comedy from French cinema’s master of the genre Pierre Salvadori (Wild Target, Après Vous, Priceless) is an irresistible mix of laughs, action and romance.

Set on the French Riviera, the wonderful Adèle Haenel (The Unknown Girl, BPM) plays detective Yvonne, the principled young widow of the local police chief who was killed in the line of duty. Each night she puts their young son to sleep with tales of his daring and bravery,so naturally Yvonne is horrified to learn that her husband was not the embodiment of virtue as she had been led to believe, but rather that an innocent man, Antoine (Pio Marmaï), has spent eight years falsely imprisoned as a result of his corruption.

Yvonne decides to do everything she can to help return the hapless parolee to his regular life and devoted fiancé (a delightful, scene-stealing Audrey Tautou). Unfortunately, Antoine has trouble adjusting back to society, and soon blows a fuse that leads to an hilarious trail of destruction, where moral, social and romantic obligations are put to the test in a spectacular way.

One of the big audience favourites of Cannes 2018’s Director’s Fortnight, this second feature from award-winning music video director Romain Gavras reveals his fine filmmaking pedigree (son of Costa-Gavras), and gives the French people the film they’ve been yearning for: their own homage to Quentin Tarantino.

The World Is Yours is a multicultural, modern-day gangster flick that follows Fares (Karim Leklou, Heatwave, AF FFF2016), a small-time drug dealer who’s ready to give up a life of crime and become a popsicle distributor instead. However, when he discovers that his mother, Danny (the incomparable Isabelle Adjani, Skirt Day, AF FFF2010) has spent all of his savings, Fares is forced back in the game, as he attempts to pull off one last heist.

With a touch of Guy Ritchie humour and some bloodsoaking by way of Brian ‘Scarface’ De Palma thrown in for good measure, The World Is Yours comes driven by an ironically kitsch soundtrack of chansons and a noteworthy karaoke rendition of Toto’s Africa. If that wasn’t enough, it also features Vincent Cassel (Mon Roi, AF FFF2017, and Gauguin, AF FFF2018) whose on-screen dynamic with Adjani is simply hilarious.

Andre Rieu Shall We Dance

André Rieu’s annual hometown Maastricht concerts attract fans from all corners of the globe. The medieval town square is transformed into a spectacular backdrop for unforgettable concerts filled with humour, fun and emotion for all ages – and, of course, magnificent music. This year’s theme is a dedication to the waltz.

The majestic waltz has been such an inspiration to André Rieu throughout his career that its three-four beat has become, in many ways, the rhythm of his life. From an international football match at Amsterdam stadium in 1995, when André filled the half-time interval with a performance of a classic waltz, to his Maastricht concerts of 2011, where André premiered ‘And The Waltz Goes On’, composed by Oscar-winning actor Sir Anthony Hopkins, this popular dance has often taken centre stage. André has composed many waltzes and since 1987, he and his Johann Strauss Orchestra have been delighting audiences all over the world with their magnificent renditions of classic waltzes.

Art & Mind

Art & Mind explores the relationship between art and madness. The theme of madness inspired some of the most incredible painters in history, but mad people often experienced an unstoppable urge to create art too. Art & Mind also investigates how visionary and avant-garde artists sought to explore their unconscious mind as an inspiration for their art.

The theme of madness inspired artists since the Middle-Ages to create truly magnificent paintings: the “Stone of Madness” by Hieronymus Bosch and the Flemish Masters, the apocalyptic visions of Pieter Bruegel, compelling depictions of asylums by Goya and countless portraits of madness including Edvard Munch’s The Scream and Vincent Van Gogh’s Self Portrait with Bandaged Ear.

Art & Mind traces the advances in the understanding of the human mind and its influences on art. The emergence of the unconscious inspired Romantic artists to explore the hidden realms of dreams and visions in their art. Emerging psychology theories of Sigmund Freud and his contemporaries later became a major source of inspiration for the Surrealists.

The border between visionary creation and madness is sometimes tenuous, and many artists experienced bouts of madness. Van Gogh cut his own ear while confined in a psychiatric hospital, William Blake had conversations with dead poets, Goya was hearing voices and Munch was convinced of being condemned into madness since birth. Psychoanalyst Carl Jung went through a psychotic crisis resulting in the visionary images of The Red Book. The Surrealists Leonora Carrington, Unica Zürn and Antonin Artaud also spent time confined in asylums and captured their experiences of madness in their art.

Stories of outsider artists are just as inspiring, ranging from the 45-volumes magnum opus of Adolf Wölfli to the compelling portraits of schizophrenia by Bryan Charnley. Art & Mind unveils the history of Art Brut, from its foundations in the dark corners of Victorian asylums to being exhibited in the world’s finest galleries, museums and private collections.

Celebrating Doris Day’s 97th Birthday with a full concert of her most loved songs, mingled with tidbits and stories of our beloved Doris Day!

Sancha Prowse sings Doris Day most beautifully, backed by the magic of Rodric White on piano & Ian Esplin on bass. With her pure, clear voice she sings iconic Doris Day songs such as Once I Had A Secret Love, When I Fall In Love, Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps and Perhaps, It’s Magic, Dream A Little Dream Of Me and so many more – songs of love and happiness! Sancha captures the essence of Doris Day with her happy demeanour and clean joyful voice. 

Doris Day worked at bringing subtle shading to her voice in a casual yet crisp and clean way, and Sancha encapsulates this with just the right nuance and sincerity to bring back all the Doris Day memories.

Sancha’s touch can be light and sunny as Doris Day’s songs so often are, or contrastingly husky and sultry as the song requires. 

Just as Doris Day’s famous song ‘It’s Magic!’

Pablo Picasso is one of the greatest artists of all time – and right up until his death in 1973 he was the most prolific of artists. Many films have dealt with these later years – the art, the affairs and the wide circle of friends. But where did this all begin? What made Picasso in the first place?

Too long ignored, it is time to look at the early years of Picasso; the upbringing and the learning that led to his extraordinary achievements. Three cities play a key role: Malaga, Barcelona and Paris. Young Picasso visits each and explores their influence on Picasso, focusing on specific artworks from these early years.

The film thus explains how this young artist acquired his craft. Looking carefully at two key early periods – the so-called Blue Period and Rose Period – the film takes us all the way to 1907 and the creation of a critical painting in the history of art – Les Demoiselles d’Avignon. It was a painting that shocked the art world but changed it irrevocably. Picasso was only 25 years old. Working closely with all three Picasso Museums in Malaga, Barcelona and Paris this film explains how he rose to great heights.

French With English Subtitles

Part of the Alliance Française French Film Festival

One of the biggest audience hits of Cannes 2018 (where it premiered as the centerpiece of the Directors’ Fortnight section), this sparkling new screwball comedy from French cinema’s master of the genre Pierre Salvadori (Wild Target, Après Vous, Priceless) is an irresistible mix of laughs, action and romance.

Set on the French Riviera, the wonderful Adèle Haenel (The Unknown Girl, BPM) plays detective Yvonne, the principled young widow of the local police chief who was killed in the line of duty. Each night she puts their young son to sleep with tales of his daring and bravery,so naturally Yvonne is horrified to learn that her husband was not the embodiment of virtue as she had been led to believe, but rather that an innocent man, Antoine (Pio Marmaï), has spent eight years falsely imprisoned as a result of his corruption.

Yvonne decides to do everything she can to help return the hapless parolee to his regular life and devoted fiancé (a delightful, scene-stealing Audrey Tautou). Unfortunately, Antoine has trouble adjusting back to society, and soon blows a fuse that leads to an hilarious trail of destruction, where moral, social and romantic obligations are put to the test in a spectacular way.

French Film Festival - A Man In A Hurry

French With English Subtitles

Part of the Alliance Française French Film Festival

Betraying the seriousness of its storyline, A Man in a Hurry is a surprisingly amusing take on physical rehabilitation, thanks to stage theatre and screen star Fabrice Luchini who uses language to pitch-perfect comedic effect – specifically drawing on the verlan slang and its backwards pronunciation of words.

Based on a memoir by the former head of Peugeot, Christian Strieff, the film serves as a wakeup call for those of us enslaved in the unrelenting arduousness of contemporary existence. What happens when your life suddenly flashes before your eyes?

Alain (Fabrice Luchini, Courted, AF FFF2016; Cycling with Molière, AF FFF2014) is a high-profile businessman who has let his personal life lapse in favour of corporate success. When he suffers a major stroke and wakes up in a hospital room, he finds himself stripped back to zero. With the help of speech therapist Jeanne (Leïla Bekhti, All Three of Us, AF FFF2016), he rebuilds his life and the relationship he shares with his daughter.

Expect an entertaining mix of deadpan pathos and dry Gallic wit, which will hit high notes for those audience members familiar with the nuances of the French language, as well as those still in the throes of learning.

Academy Award® nominee Viggo Mortensen (Eastern Promises, The Lord of the Rings trilogy) and Academy Award® winner Mahershala Ali (Moonlight, Hidden Figures) star in Participant Media and DreamWorks Pictures’ Green Book. In his foray into powerfully dramatic work as a feature director, Peter Farrelly helms the film inspired by a true friendship that transcended race, class and the 1962 Mason-Dixon line.

When Tony Lip (Mortensen), a bouncer from an Italian-American neighborhood in the Bronx, is hired to drive Dr. Don Shirley (Ali), a world-class Black pianist, on a concert tour from Manhattan to the Deep South, they must rely on “The Green Book” to guide them to the few establishments that were then safe for African-Americans. Confronted with racism, danger—as well as unexpected humanity and humor—they are forced to set aside differences to survive and thrive on the journey of a lifetime.

Jim Burke (The Descendants), Charles B. Wessler (The Heartbreak Kid) produce alongside Farrelly’s fellow writers, Brian Currie and Nick Vallelonga, and Farrelly. The drama is executive produced by Participant’s Jeff Skoll (The Help) and Jonathan King (Lincoln), along with Octavia Spencer (Fruitvale Station) and Kwame L. Parker (Kill Bill series), as well as Cinetic Media’s John Sloss (Boyhood) and Steven Farneth. Linda Cardellini (Brokeback Mountain, The Founder) co-stars.

When police officer Asger Holm (Jakob Cedergren) is demoted to desk work, he expects a sleepy beat as an emergency dispatcher. That all changes when he answers a panicked phone call from a kidnapped woman who then disconnects abruptly. Asger, con-fined to the police station, is forced to use others as his eyes and ears as the severity of the crime slowly becomes more clear. The search to find the missing woman and her assailant will take every bit of his intuition and skill, as a ticking clock and his own personal demons conspire against him. This innovative and unrelenting Danish thriller uses a single location to great effect, ratcheting up the tension as twists pile up and secrets are revealed. Director Gustav Möller expertly frames the increasingly messy proceedings against the clean Scandinavian sterility of the police department, while Cedergren’s strong performance anchors the film and places the audience squarely in Holm’s tragically flawed yet well-intentioned mindspace.

Sat 30th March at 10am & Mon 1st April at 11:30am

Water Lilies by Monet – the Magic of Water and Light tells the story of the origin of a massive work of art that broke with convention, of an artist resurrecting his life only thanks to painting. His human endeavour defied both space and conventions in his timeless masterpieces.

In a war-torn country, the undisputed genius of French Art disrupted the art world and changes it forever. As the end of the First World War drew near it became clear to Monet that his work of art could not but be his final legacyto France: a symbol of peace, hope, and resistance, in a battered and bloody world.

This is the tale of an obsession with light and water the painter could not escape from and how he transformed it into a kind of magic. A tale of the radical elements that revolutionized Modern Art: Monet’s clear intent was to transfer onto canvas the “first, pure impression” of forms and objects as they appear to the eye that has never seen them before.
