With such a vast suite of excellent French cinema to see, Alliance Française de Perth director, Audrey Lureau, has compiled a list of the top 5 films on show this year.

Eiffel

The Festival opens with Eiffel; a sumptuous, romantic, costume drama which explores the passionate love affair between celebrated engineer Gustave Eiffel, whose company designed and built France’s iconic Eiffel Tower, and Adrienne, a mysterious woman from his past. See more and grab tickets here.

The Godmother

The magnificent Isabelle Huppert returns to the Festival with a triumphant performance in this laugh-out-loud French noir comedy where the gritty realism of Breaking Bad meets the stoner comedy of a Seth Rogen movie. Find out more here.

Delicious

The mouth-watering new film from director extraordinaire Éric Besnard is sure to delight, as it depicts France’s enduring love affair with gastronomy. Premiering internationally, this splendid 18th Century comedy is a wildly enjoyable tale of reignited passion, mentorship and revenge. Grab tickets and read more here.

Love Affair(s)

When two strangers are left alone in the French countryside, they fill their time by regaling each other with stories of love gained and lost. Referred to as a “more serious Love Actually”, Love Affair(s) is an entertaining and surprising exploration of the complexities of modern love. Find out more here.

Bye Bye Morons

In this audacious dark comedy, a seriously ill woman tries to find her long-lost child with the help of a man in the middle of a bureaucratic burnout, and a blind archivist prone to over-enthusiasm. Check out Bye Bye Morons here.
