“DO YOU SINK I CAN TRED ZEES EEN FOR A CREESPY BAGUETTE, JOHNNY? OUI, JEAN, BUT ZE TCHEEK BEE-EIND ZE CONTEUR WEEL ASK ‘ET AVEC CECI?’ AND ZEN YOU WEEL HAF TO SHOOT ER, BEECAUSE DAT EEZ WHAT WEE AJEENG YET COOL FRENCH MEETS DO IN SUSH CIRCONSTANCES.”  NO, I HAVEN’T GIVEN ANYTHING AWAY! NO ONE GETS KILLED IN A FRENCH BAKERY, AS IT IS HOLY GROUND, EVERY BIT AS WORTHY OF “SANCTUARY” STATUS AS NOTRE-DAME CATHEDRAL.  YOU’LL JUST HAVE TO COME SEE FOR YOURSELF TO FIND OUT WHAT SCREEN LEGEND JEAN ROCHEFORT AND ROCK ICON JOHNNY HALLYDAY DECIDE TO DO WITH THEIR FLINGUE.  SILENCE AND POETRY; GUNS AND SLIPPERS; THIS FILM-NOIR AND WESTERN-INSPIRED TRADING PLACES FOR EXISTENTIALISTS IS WAY BETTER THAN GIRL ON A TRAIN WITH NARY A CORKSCREW IN SIGHT—AND THE TRAIN IS FASTER, TOO!
The French Program film critics give this flick...
…two baguettes and three flingues!

IFF//International Film Festival//Fall 2017
On Being Human
Friday, October 6 at 7:00 p.m. in Hasley Hall 101
Cidade de Deus//City of God
Film 2.jpg
To be human is to … run, Rocket, run before the Runts get you!
Welcome to Tijuana, tequila, sexo y marijuana! Oops, wrong film, wrong town--That’s a Manu Chao song! It starts with a chicken who has a very definite interest in crossing the road. Don’t all flicks start this way? But it quickly goes downhill from the favelas of Rio to Ipanema. The girl may be tall and tan and young and lovely, but this isn’t her story.  It’s about the pistol-packing imps you see in the picture. Good or bad, regardless of age, they are all at war with each other and society at large. No one is safe and the body count approaches that of Scarface (Say hello to my little friend!) But there is a glint of hope in the eyes of Rocket, a young photographer who is more related to David Bowie and Elton John than to Kin Jong-un.
 The IFF critics have awarded this film...
…a Nikon camera, three Beretta 9 mm’s, and a running chicken.
I got a Nikon camera; I love to take a photograph. So, mama don't take my Kodachrome away.
