The one and only Catherine Deneuve just had her birthday last week. Let’s celebrate her time-less beauty and talent with Palais Royal!, a French comedy about royal family written and directed by Valérie Lemercier (who also plays the protagonist) in which the Queen is played by, of course, Catherine Deneuve, the queen of French cinema.
The greatest screen seducer and action hero Alain Delon does not only shine in front of the camera. From the 1960s, he had been the producer of 38, writer for 10, and director for 4 films. We include two intense crime thrillers from the late 70s to early 80s in this week’s selection: Death of a Corrupt Man, which Delon funded and produced, and For a Cop’s Hide, which he directed – both feature the performance of the “sacred monster” of France.
This week, we are proud to introduce to you another passionate tribute to the love of music, Balkan Melodie, a documentary that follows the legendary ethnomusicologist and music producer Marcel Cellier and his wife, telling the inspiring story of how they brought music from Eastern Europe to the West during the Cold War.
While there are an increasing number of dividing voices around the world, we are in dire need for initiatives that bring us all together. Music is one of them. With One Voice brings us in a remarkable journey, in which musicians from Israel and Palestine with different religions unite to share the most important message: peace.
As the new semester is about to begin, it’s the best time for a good French romance centering the campus life. We are proud to present The Student, a beautifully rendered classic featuring Sophie Marceau and Vincent Lindon.
Finally, we can enjoy all the three films of the beloved Fantomas trilogy on VOD now! See the standup performance of Jean Marais who plays the double role of both hero and villain in these two classic sequels…
As time passes, so do the summer holidays of our childhood. Marcel Pagnol immortalized his holidays, and with it, a magnificent portray of French “Art de Vivre”, through two movies My Father’s Glory and My Mother’s Castle, which we let you (re)discover on VOD.
