Calling all French film lovers! The Alliance Française French Film Festival is set to kick-off tomorrow in Sydney, before heading around Australia.
This excellent news for all francophiles downunder, giving them the chance to immerse themselves in all things French! With an impressive array of French films and special guests, this year’s festival is certain not to disappoint.
So what’s on?
From classics like Marcel Carné’s 1945 production of ‘Children of Paradise’ (pictured above), to the romantic comedy ‘Happiness Never Comes Alone’ starring Sophie Marceau and Gad Elmaleh, there’s truly something for everyone.
Be sure to catch Benoit Jacquot’s French Revolutionary masterpiece ‘Farewell My Queen’, starring the inimitable Diane Kruger as the royal highness herself (pictured above). Be delighted by the enchanting tale of a chef turned personal cook for the President in ‘Haute Cuisine‘ (pictured below).
Discover the story of Auguste and Jean Renoir (artist and filmaker respectively), and the woman who came between them in ‘Renoir’, or see another stunning performance from Audrey Tatou in ‘Thérèse Desqueyroux’.
