Bethany Arthouse Film Festival screening: Rosalie Blum
29 August @ 8:00 pm| Varied
Celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Bethany Arthouse Film Festival in Geelong.
Film five: ROSALIE BLUM (France)
The biggest hit in the 27-year history of the Alliance Française French Film Festival, Rosalie Blum is an enchanting, witty and ingeniously crafted comedy about a random encounter that has unexpected and life-changing consequences.
Thirty-something Vincent Machot (Kyan Khojandi) is a hairdresser, like his father before him. Life rotates around work, his overbearing mother who lives in the apartment upstairs, and a womanising cousin constantly trying to set him up. But one morning Vincent experiences a powerful déjà-vu when he meets the gaze of a grocery store clerk, Rosalie Blum (Noémie Lvovsky). Intrigued by this mysterious woman, he begins a search to uncover the truth behind their connection…setting in place a series of coincidences, both hilarious and moving.
With its themes of the importance of altruism, forgiveness and the value of compassion, this film is a reminder of the best that French cinema has to offer.
“A joy! Fresh and engaging. A feel-good film which combines humour and eccentric touches with surges of genuine emotion.”- THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
