The french Film Festival is underway, and I'm planning to start on Sunday, March 10: 6.45pm In the House, by Ozon, w/Fabrice Luchini, Emmanuelle Seigner and Kristin Scott Thomas.
Taking advantage of the public holiday on Monday the 11th, I've selected a double-take of 1.30pm Looking for Hortense and 3.45pm Sister, both got awards at international festivals, and seem to be very interesting, each in its own way.
If you feel like going, but don't want to go on your own - let's join forces :))) If you have any other preferences for this weekend's features (e.g., Therese Desqueyroux, Sat.@8.30pm) - get in touch, and we could probably work it out. My # is [masked].
P.S. all of the showtimes are for Palace Cinema Kino on Collins St.

I agree, Peter. Thought the cinematography/special effects were impressive but characters were simplistic and storyline overly disjointed.

A very ambitious, well made film - a few of my friends who have read the book found it fragmented and confusing, but overall I think it was well done. There was a lot to absorb and I'll probably spend my commuting time trying to put the puzzle together. I picked this film because of the impressive cast and they did not disappoint. Many thanks for your continual attendance and making the Melbourne Film Club such a great Meet Up group! See you next time :)

Hi All, Great Space Cafe called and said they'll be closing at 3pm (they told me 4pm yesterday) which doesn't give us much time for us to chat after the film which will end around 2.30pm. Let's go annoy Laurent instead (unless someone has another venue near by that can accommodate all of us).

Hi again, sorry for the multiple posts. I've booked us some tables at Great Space Cafe (since Laurent hasn't been all that nice to us). It's located on the ground level (Kino is lower ground) so please head there after the film. If you don't intend to join us, could you please let me know. We always lose a few after the film and I wouldn't want you to think we've abandoned you. If all goes well, perhaps this could be our new post film hang out?

Thank you for your interest in this film. Since we will be a group of 25 (at the moment), could you please update your rsvp to no if you don't intend to come so we don't wait for you. NO SHOWS are recorded. Looking forward to catching up with the regulars as well as our newbies.

I would love to but i have to care for my child this weekend, plus take dogs out for walk at 1. I doubt i'd be back here in time. I have just found meetup and the two things I love are on here. Thank you for having this fantastic group and site.
