Cinéma Français, Printemps 2015 (Spring 2015)longdimanchedefiancailles
The Franco-American Centre is pleased to announce its Cinéma Français course being offered during Spring Semester 2015. The theme this semester is “Extraordinary Personal Strength.”

Tonight’s Film:
Un long dimanche de fiançailles (“A Very Long Engagement”)
Mathilde (Audrey Tautou) is told that her fiancé (Gaspard Ulliel) has been killed in World War I. She refuses to believe this, however, and begins trying to find out what actually happened on the battlefield the night he was supposedly killed, enlisting the help of a private investigator. During her search, she stumbles across evidence of the inhumane and morally bankrupt system used by the French to deal with deserters, and hears from other men who were sentenced to extreme punishment.

Each film is preceded by a brief presentation of key concepts and followed by group discussion of how the film relates to the theme.  All films are in French with English subtitles.  Presentations and discussions are in English.
