French hit to wrap up film festival
Posted 17 August 2017
The Bethany Arthouse Film Festival celebrates its 20th year in 2017, and what better way to wrap up a fantastic festival season than with the feel-good “Rosalie Blum” – the biggest hit in the 27-year history of the Alliance Française French Film Festival.
Screening at GPAC on Tuesday 29 August at 8pm, “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.
The Bethany Arthouse Film Festival is Bethany Community Support’s major annual fundraising initiative, and helps support the important work that Bethany does in the local community.
Tickets for “Rosalie Blum” are on sale now from GPAC – in person, online or phone.
