TOP 5 French Film Festival
Those damn Frenchies: they always manage to produce films that are equal parts charming, romantic and subversive. The annual Alliance Francaise French Film Festival scores a spot on every francophile and film buff’s calendar – we ask Carine Bougnague, director of the Alliance Francaise de Perth, for her top picks.
“I loved it because the film relays a moment of history that could have changed the face of the most beloved capital in the world, Paris. The film is a breathtaking psychological thriller between two characters/actors at the very top of their game.”
2. The Bélier Family
“This is the feel-good film of the festival. Don’t miss this wonderful family movie! Laughter and tears guaranteed.”
3. Les Gazelles
“A good comedy for the ladies, Les Gazelles is a sharp look at the daily life
of a group of girls. I could be one of these Gazelles…”
4. French Riviera
“A prestigious cast and director, this is an exciting mystery as well as a love story between two star-crossed lovers. I just loved it.”
5. The Connection
“A thrilling gangster film in the vein of Scorsese, with excellent performances
by the gorgeous Jean Dujardin and Gilles Lellouche.“
