INFO: 117 minutes, France, 2017, CLUBVeteran wedding planner Max is organising a lavish wedding in a 17th century chateau.

This is an expertly assembled, tartly played and hugely enjoyable romp from directors Eric Toledano and Olivier Nakache, whose Intouchables became a monster hit a few years ago.” – The Hollywood Reporter
“Co-directors and screenwriters Eric Toledano and Olivier Nakache (Intouchables) pull another magical trick out of the hat with a ruthlessly-plotted breeze of ensemble good humour.” – Screen International

Cast: Jakob Cedergren, Jessica Dinnage, Johan Olsen

FILM INFO: 85 mins, Denmark, 2018, Club

Demoted to deskwork and awaiting a disciplinary hearing, Agent Asger is working the night shift in an emergency call room. When he receives a call from a woman who has been abducted his resolve and arrogance are tested as it becomes a race against time to locate her.  Taking place in real time and in a single location nothing is quite as it seems in this claustrophobic thriller.  Using sound as the primary storytelling tool and with a powerful central performance from Jakob Cedergren, The Guilty is a visceral viewing experience.

With a terse 85-minute running time, The Guilty illustrates Möller’s confidence with the craft of film-making -Fionnuala Halligan, ScreenDaily

★★★★★  …..So taut, you almost forget to breathe -Wendy Ide, The Guardian

With its single setting and real-time story, “The Guilty” is a brilliant genre exercise, a cinematic study in tension. -Brian Tallerico,

Just to Be Sure is the kind of intelligent and rather artful French comedy that doesn’t come around so often nowadays. Tardieu juggles lots of heavy issues with a supremely light touch, making us laugh about what would normally be a series of tragic events… -Jordan Mintzer, The Hollywood Reporter

maintaining a tone of witty naturalism that accommodates some touching moments as well as the broader humor…. –Denis Harvey, Variety

 …a heart-warming comedy that throws a small batch of fantastic lines at us in every scene, which did not fail to hit home in the cinema of the Théâtre Croisette (Cannes).  Bénédicte Prot CineEuropa

Presented with the support of the French Embassy and the Institut Français.
