No need for an Air France ticket to find out what’s happening in French film. The 13th Rendez-Vous with French Cinema is featuring 15 films making their U.S. debut, directed by directors such as Cédric Klapisch (L’Auberge Espagnole), who will release Paris, starring Juliette Binoche, about a man awaiting a heart transplant. Also in the crop of new young talent comes Fear(s) of the Dark, a collective debut effort by comic-book artists directing in a black-and-white, sci-fi style. Oscar-winning director Claude Lelouch opens the event with his new thriller, Roman de gare.
