   by Marla LewinJust a little more than a month away from my favorite French Film Festival in Los Angeles, The City of Lights-City of Angels film festival. Each year it gets better and better with great films and small intimate interviews with amazing legendary directors and this year will be no different as they will be honoring the acclaimed writer-director Bertrand Blier.

A French Feast For Cinema Lovers

user
  It is a longstanding amour fou......the crazy love New Yorkers have for all things French, and the French appreciation of New York as its cultural cousin. For both sides, the yearly Rendez-Vous With French Cinema program, which is now running in several venues around New York City, is both an erotic embrace and a dazzling dance. For francophiles and film buffs, it is a film feast. Presented by the Film Society at Lincoln Center and Unifrance, the 16th edition offers its customary ho...

Potiche

Gérard Depardieu stars in the film Potiche (2010) which screened in the Emirates Palace theater this week in Abu Dhabi. Gerard made the audiences laugh with his good humor and pot belly.    The film was an average family comedy taking place in 1977. Funny at moments and a bit bland for its stark more spicy competition.

Hommage To Nathalie Baye in New York

user
What is it about French actresses, that they grow even more beautiful and, arguably, more talented with age. Jeanne Moreau and Catherine Deneuve are but two examples of this gorgeous gallic phenomenon, where their later roles take on even greater gravitas as the subtle lines of their face change, their voices lowers a register and their once all-too-fragile beauty slightly hardens and becomes as enduring as a Greek sculpture. But blood courses through their veins and passion, if not only...

Gérard Depardieu To Give Master Class In Montreal

Tribute To A Gallic Bad Boy

 Wednesday, August 8---------There is no equivalent in the United States.....the actor Gerard Depardieu is a truly French phenomenon, a pasty-faced, barrel-chested, unpolished, roughly handsome leading man, who somehow is an enduring Gallic sex symbol. He does not have the sensual prettiness of an Alain Delon, the rail-thin sex appeal of a Jean-Paul Belmondo or the intelligent visage of a Yves Montand. He is, in fact, his own unique creation, and his enduring appeal in French cinema is mostly...
