MADE IN FRANCE
France invades NYC with the Film Society of Lincoln Center’s 19th annual, eclectic-as-ever showcase of contemporary Gallic cinema, this year sprawling uptown (Walter Reade Theater), downtown (IFC Center), and in Brooklyn (BAMcinématek). The Rendez-Vous with French Cinema series kicks off with Emmanuelle Bercot’s buoyant road-trip drama On My Way (with an in-person appearance by its immortal, César-nominated star Catherine Deneuve) and closes with Bertrand Tavernier’s savvy political comedy The French Minister. Highly recommended are Rebecca Zlotowski’s Grand Central — in which Blue Is the Warmest Color star Léa Seydoux is adulterously hetero-over-heels for nuclear plant laborer Tahar Rahim (A Prophet) — as well as new work from veteran auteurs François Ozon (Young and Beautiful), Michel Gondry (Mood Indigo), and Serge Bozon (Tip Top).
