Les Amants du Pont Neuf Guide

user
by Kathryn Hall My flatmate and I set a house rule to only watch French films while living in Paris, to better ‘immerse’ ourselves in our adoptive land’s language and culture and so on. Though we push it at times, (’Jean Reno’s French, so I guess we can justifiably watch Léon again…’) this has led us to stumble upon a couple of less widely remembered French films. The first was Les Amants du Pont Neuf, directed by Leos Carax – a very late-’80s/early-...

FLIFF Film In Focus: IN MY SLEEP

user
  It is always tempting for a filmmaker who takes on the thriller to emulate the great master of suspense, Alfred Hitchcock. In fact, the term "Hitchcockian" is as overused as it is complimentary. However, in the case of IN MY SLEEP, a nifty thriller presented this evening at the Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival, the parallels are there in spades. IN MY SLEEP, written and directed by Allen Wolf, takes on a very Hitchcockian subject: the fuzzy line between imagin...
